Snack of the Day: Spinach and Strawberry Smoothie

Anyone who knows me knows that I love my spinach! Mix it with fruit and keep it simple and healthy....YUM!

I came across this smoothie recipe on the Eat Good 4 Life blog: (http://eatgood4life.blogspot.com/2011/05/spinach-and-strawberry-smoothie.html) and it is so simple and delicious. Not only does it have spinach, but berries, bananas, and even incorporates good old flax seed. This smoothie can also be used as a good way to sneak in spinach into people's diets without them knowing! The ingredients in the recipe can also be easily substituted out with others in case you want a non-dairy or vegan smoothie. It's versatile, delicious, easy, and you get your fruits and veggies in one hit!

Blend together 6 oz of spinach, 8 oz of strawberries or raspberries, 1/4 cup of honey (you can substitute agave nectar here is you want to take the vegan route), 1-2 ripe bananas, 4-5 cups of soy or skim milk, and 1/4 cup of flaxseed.
