Spinach Smoothie

My mother has always been health conscious, but for the last couple of years, she has been into making "Spinach Smoothies". These drinks are very healthy, but may seem strange to some. Many people have asked her what is in them, and I am here to reveal her secret recipe. It may not sound pleasant, but it is actually pretty good.

Spinach Smoothie:

A little water
Handful of spinach (raw, washed)
Ground flaxseed (tsp)
Any or all of the following:
apple (cored)
orange (peeled)

Blend together and enjoy!

Note: The flavor of carrots are mild and blend in well. However, you need a heavy duty blender (like Vita Mix to puree it). If you have a juicer, you can juice the carrots and add the juice).

  1. Thanks to the sleepovers at your home, Craig is a willing participant in drinking spinach shakes. He gets one most mornings. I add homemade grape juice, home grown raspberries, banana and bottled peaches. I even added a kiwi once. Thanks for putting us on to a healthy drink to start the day!P.S. Love you Derek!
