Blueberry-Strawberry Spinach Smoothie

I have had a lot of people asking me for the recipe of the smoothie I make every morning, and since I've figured it out down the exact number of strawberries, I can share it with you! First, an admission: I love slurpees. Love them. I love the cold, the cruch, the sweetness. I hate the calories. So, my solution for this was NOT to give up my indulgence, just to change it up. That is why I have these every day - I still feel like I"m getting a treat, but it is much healthier. Much.

Okay, so here is what I put in for ONE large smoothie:

1/4 cup frozen blueberries
3 frozen strawberries
1 small banana (or half a large)
1/3-1/2 cup milk (I use 1% - but you could use skim or even soy milk, which is very creamy!)
1/2 cup jammed full of baby spinach
1 tsp splenda if you really like the sweet, though it is very sweet on it's own!

Calories: 150

That's it! Blend it up and drink it down. Love it! Let me know what YOUR favorite smoothie recipe is!

Thank you for this recipe. I love smoothies and I love that the calories are cut in this recipe. I will be buying what I need as soon as I go shopping. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks for sharing. It sounds wonderful. I would change the Splenda to Stevia though. Read up on the two and you might want to change to something from a sweet leaf plant rather than chemicals. Just wanted to let you know in case you hadn't heard about it.
