Fruit and Spinach Smoothie

Before I get to the winner of the $25, t-shirt and other goodies, I have to tell you that I am disappointed in myself for not sharing this smoothie with you sooner. It's one that I make regularly. Almost daily in the summers. It is fantastic, versatile, healthy and packed with total good-ness. My boys love it, too, so I always pour them cups before I pour my own. It's a guaranteed serving of veggies and a couple servings of fruit for their little bodies to start their day!

Onto the winner from my Strawberry Muffins post! I loved all of your comments so much, truly, but I just had to choose the one written by Melinda. Congrats! Please use the Contact button to send me your mailing address and t-shirt size (unisex) and I'll get your goodies in the mail!

My measurements are never exact, but here is what I throw into my blender. Honestly, I rarely add the strawberries, but they add a nice touch if you have them on hand. The OJ is optional, too, as you can get plenty of flavor with the almond milk. Don't be afraid to PACK it with spinach!

Puree it all up, pour into cups and start your day off feeling good!
