I really needed a way to pack in some more nutrients to my maternity leave diet. Most of my daytime meals are whatever I can fix in a flash, often microwave leftovers or quick snacks with a few too many boxes of mac n cheese making an appearance. Veggies are usually for dinner only...if we're lucky.
- 1 large handful of frozen fresh blueberries
- 6 fresh strawberries
- 2+ handfuls of fresh baby spinach
- 1 whole banana
- enough skim milk to cover the blueberries below
I gave it a few pulses, stirred it with a spoon to get the spinach to sink down, and proceeded to blend. This was the result:
My only trouble is I woke a sleeping baby with the blender...oops:
Here it is ready to drink, and wow was it delicious! I like spinach, but even if you are a greens hater this is a great way to hide them from yourself, or your family, because you really can't taste them!
