There’s been a lot of recipe testing around here as we head into Fall.
Amongst the few failures, a perfectly easy, delicious, true superfood (real food) smoothie emerged.
Never tried a green smoothie? They are a great, easy way to get more of the good stuff in. It’s the perfect go-to food, especially on busy days. I’m not talking smoothie shakes with fake, denatured protein powders, extra sugars, mixes or chemicals (many brands do, read your ingredient labels), but ones made of all real food. They are perfect for picky eaters– this one has been kid tested and approved more times than I can count. Goodbye frozen waffles or cereal for breakfast!
But, let’s be honest. It’s not just kids that need help eating extra veggies and nutrient dense food.
Eating real, nutrient dense whole foods is the best way to give your body all the good vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that it needs, in a form that your body can easily absorb.
4 ingredients- excuse me- 4 of the healthiest real foods in terms of nutrient density per bite- and ice. Did I mention it tastes great too? Now you have no excuses. Oops. So sorry.
Maybe you’ll forgive me when you taste it.
1 cup blueberries- fresh or frozen
3 (or more) large handfuls spinach
ice to blend
Directions: Add blueberries, banana and avocado with ice and some water. Add spinach once fruit is pureed and blend together.
