If you are looking for a good green smoothie that tastes great and is satisfying, this Spinach smoothie recipe might be just the answer! Lots of nutrition and tastes in a very satisfying mix.
Its also easy to turn this Spinach 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.
