Green smoothies continue to grow in popularity-in spite of their color! They not only are a wonderful source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and omega 3’s, green smoothies, made with the right mix of fruits are filling, satisfying and very tasty. This fruit smoothie with Spinach smoothie is also a great recipe to include in a smoothie diet.
Its also easy to turn this green smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your smoothie blender mix:
-3 handfuls spinach leaves
-1 banana, peeled and sliced
-1 navel orange, peeled and quartered
-1 peach, pitted
-1 Tbsp. Chia seed
-1/2 cup of cold orange juice
