Green Apple Spinach Smoothie

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. 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) and 2-5 fresh mint leaves if you like mint! Blend, add to your glass and garnish with an apple slice.

Recipe Notes

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!
