Strong to the Finich

Know what this post is going to be about?

Look up at the title.

It’s about spinach!

And how everyone who’s anyone says you can add it to a smoothie and not notice it’s there.

Dear readers,

they’re telling the truth.

I didn’t want to believe it; didn’t see how it could be.  But I was too intrigued not to try it for myself.  I added a small handful of spinach to my favorite August smoothie, peach-blueberry, and blended things for a little longer than usual (I had visions of stringy spinach getting stuck between my teeth if I didn’t), and bam.  A smoothie to tide me over between breakfast and lunch, and no spinach taste.  How that’s possible, I have no idea.  But every book I read on nutrition sings the praises of Popeye’s favorite leafy green vegetable.  So incorporating a little more into my everyday can’t be so bad.

To make a leafy green blueberry peach smoothie for 1, you will need:

  • 1 small container yogurt (or a couple of large spoonfuls from a larger tub)
  • a couple of handfuls of blueberries (somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 C)
  • 1 peach, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small handful spinach
  • 1 glug OJ (no more than 1/2 C)
Place everything in the blender and whir away.
