If you’e like me, you struggle to get your daily dose of fruits and vegetables. I developed a delicious smoothie recipe to make daily to get you 1. 5 cups of fruit, 2 cups of spinach, and a whole lot of protein. According to Chose My Plate (a government nutrition site), women ages 19-50 are supposed to get 2.5 cups of vegetables and about 2 cups of fruit. How awesome is it that with ones simple smoothie, you can almost meet those requirements? It’s a delicious blend of sweet and tart that will leave you satisfied and full. I promise you won’t taste the spinach at all!
1 tbsp. almond butter
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1-1.5 cups almond milk
2 cups frozen mixed berries (I used raspberries and blueberries for this recipe)
2 cups spinach
Add ingredients and blend until liquid. Add frozen berries to thicken or almond milk to thin. Pour in a glass and enjoy!
