Spinach & Peach Smoothie

This smoothie saved me and my weekend recently. I recently jumped onto a juice smoothie kick unexpectedly. I should mention that I LOVE smoothies, my kids love smoothies and they are a quick and easy way to pump in some veggies. Usually when I make smoothies- I make them as the main focus of a meal, with some protein and fiber to add some substance to my nutrients. However the purpose of this smoothie was different.

This time, I was focused purely on nutrients because…. da da daaaa… I was sick with every head-cold annoyance possible. While I was able to eat, my desire wasn’t there for the originally planned BBQ. (BBQ is not desirable when you’re not feeling well… period). So this smoothie saved me and my weekend, and I wanted to front load my body with healthy nutrients.

 

Ingredients:

1- 1.5 handfuls of fresh spinach

1 banana

1 peach (or canned peaches)

A splash of orange juice

1-2 t. honey

A few ice cubes

 

Method:

Add all ingredients listed above, in order or opposite order, in a blender or related. For example, ensure your ice cubes are put in the blender closest to the blades, and the spinach is the last item to put in. Otherwise the blades may have a difficult time cutting through just raw spinach. Blend and pulse until smooth. Enjoy!
