Spinach in a glass


I promise this tastes better than it sounds. A spinach smoothie in the morning is a great way to get several servings of fruit and vegetables – and it’s portable.


2 handfuls fresh spinach (about 5 oz; can use frozen)

1/2 cup soy milk

1 banana

1-2 cups frozen blueberries (according to your taste)

2 pitted dates, chopped

2T cocoa (or 1/2 packet Carnation Instant Breakfast)

1/2 cup water

Combine the spinach and soy milk in a blender until smooth – can add more milk as needed, should be liquid consistency.

Add banana and blend. Add blueberries and blend; may need to add water to blend to liquid.

Add cocoa and dates and blend.
