Green Apple + Spinach Smoothie

Green Apple + Spinach SmoothieHave you tried green smoothies? They are healthy and refreshing. I love making them for breakfast. The great thing about green smoothies is that you can add a lot of green to your diet without eating salad. I love salads, but sometimes variety is good! I’ve also known a lot of people who don’t like salad who love green smoothies! They’re a treat!

Green Apple + Spinach Smoothie Needed:

1 lime
coconut milk
1 granny smith apple
baby spinach
yogurt
ice cubes
optional: mint leaves.

Directions: For the green layer, mix 2 cups spinach (2 giant handfuls works), 1/2 cup coconut milk, 4 ice cubes, 1/2 a granny smith apple (chopped) and the juice of 1 lime. Blend together and add to cup. Rinse your blender and then combine 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup yogurt (green yogurt or vanilla yogurt work great), 1/2 a granny smith apple (chopped)Β and 2-5 fresh mint leaves if you like mint! Blend, add to your glass and garnish with an apple slice.

Note: This smoothie is refreshing and a little tart. If you like your smoothies extra sweet, try adding a teaspoon of Truvia to each layer before blending. Spinach is the easiest green to blend in a sweeter smoothie, but if you don’t mind the “green” taste try baby kale next time!
