Spinach Smoothie That Doesn’t Taste Like Death

Spinach Smoothie

I do not like vegetables.

For 24 years, I got along just fine without them.  I could be picky and not have to suffer.  Since the pregnancy, my body isn’t the immortal I thought it was.  I’ve gotten a cold, stomach virus, and simple cuts and scrapes aren’t healing as easily as they once would.  So, I was told I needed to eat leafy vegetables.  Ugh.

Since my need for them outweighs my want, I had to figure out a way to get the nutrients the vegetables/fruits would give me without hating everything about it.  I went to my buddy/coworker, Trey.  He is the health nut I’ve been consulting lately. Suffice it to say, this dude knows his stuff.

I told him what I needed and that I didn’t want it to taste like ass he hand-wrote a recipe for me.  That’s right, hand-wrote.  From his head.  I was pretty impressed.

The ingredients are:

2 frozen bananas
1 cup strawberries
1 cup pineapple
1 cup spinach
2-3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp mint leaves (optional)
1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt


Looking ok at this point

Smoothie 2

Strawberry being a boss.

Smoothie 4
I was a bit skeptical.

Smoothie 3

I loved it!

…Danny did not.  But, his aversion was the banana.  So, we can throw something else in there next time.

I believe this will be a regular thing!
