Strawberry Surprise Smoothie

Oh, how things change. Last week I was enjoying this smoothie after a dip in the pool, and this week I was back to work and school and snow! So much for March going out like a lamb….

The smoothie was made at my Mom’s request, but then I suggested we thrown in the surprise ingredient – spinach. With the strawberries and banana, it was still plenty sweet, and you couldn’t taste the spinach at all. It just added a little bit of extra nutrition, and well, I do love spinach. The mix below made 3 small smoothies, just enough to tide us over to one of my favorite dinners, homemade manicotti. This is my last post from this year’s trip – next week we’ll be back to the regular programming.

5-6 strawberries, cleaned and hulled
1 ripe banana
1 c. raw spinach leaves
6 oz. nonfat vanilla yogurt
1/2 c. ice
Splash milk

Blend until smooth.
