It’s about spinach!
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)
