Spinach is a favorite for smoothies because its texture and taste are so much easier to hide than kale, and it allows the bright flavors of your raw fruits to shine through.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 2

  • 1 cup Steamed Spinach
  • 1 cup frozen sour cherries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 medium banana
  • 1 scoops Whey Protein Powder, Vanilla
  • 3/4 cup Almond Milk, Original

DIRECTIONS

1 Blend all the ingredients in a blender on "HIGH" until creamy, or the desired consistency.
2 *I used frozen banana in this recipe.
3 ** Raw spinach is high in oxalic acid, which can be hard on your kidneys. It’s also a goitrogen, meaning that (when raw) it can disrupt your thyroid function. A quick steam lowers both the oxalic acid and the goitrogens, meaning you can still have a yummy smoothie full of its benefits! Keep steamed spinach on hand if you enjoy it in smoothies regularly. It will keep in the fridge for several days.
