If you're not on the smoothie train, you ought' to jump on quick.
Smoothies are quick, easy, portable, healthy, filling, colorful, creative and delicious. Not to mention slimming and a 'snacking' preventer. How much more convincing could you need???
Since beginning my own binge on smoothies, I have had to mix things up and experiment outside my typical strawberry-banana-orange juice recipe. Some have been good, some barely drinkable, but this recipe is stellar and I highly encourage you to make it, like right now or tomorrow, if you are reading this on Facebook in bed at 11:00 at night.
What you need: A Magic Bullet (or blender), strawberry kefir, spinach leaves, 1 mango, 1 banana, pineapple (fresh is obviously better, but a can is cheaper!) & 1/2 cup of almond milk.
Slice banana, mango, pineapple and set aside.
Pour the almond milk into the blender cup and add a generous handful of spinach leaves- liquid helps to break up and blend the spinach leaves.
Blend! Blend! Blend!
Toss in your banana, mango and pineapple. Blend again!
Top with a small pour of strawberry kefir. Final blend!
Pour into a glass or drink right out of the blender cup and enjoy!
***Ice cubes can be added to keep the smoothie cold longer, but if you run out of space for ice in the blender, place in the freezer for 30 minutes- it does the trick.
