All you will need is the ingredients called for, a blender, and a cute cup or two.

Super Spinach Smoothie//

What to grab at the grocery:

  • About 2 cups frozen spinach broken into pieces (using frozen makes it frothier than fresh spinach does, plus you won’t need any ice!)

  • 2 bananas

  • 1 cup apple juice

 

 

Add all ingredients and blend it up!  Spinach makes stronger and more efficient muscles – so not only are you giving yourself a treat, but your muscles will thank you too.  Enjoy.

 

 

Sunny Citrus Smoothie// need some more energy without guzzling any caffeine?  This is totally the smoothie for you!

 

Toss this in your cart:

  • 1 orange, peeled and chopped, seeds removed

  • 1 lemon, peeled and chopped, seeds removed

  • 4 spinach leaves

  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped (or grated – whatever strikes your fancy)

  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk

  • 1 peach, peeled and chopped

 

Blend it together and enjoy boosting both your immune system and energy levels!

 

 

Superpower Smoothie// kale is packed with nutrients, so after drinking this one, you could very easily become superwoman.

 

What you will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk

  • 2 cups kale stems and leaves (this is where the superpowers come in)

  • 1 kiwi fruit, peeled

  • 1 Tbsp smooth unsalted peanut butter

  • 1 tsp agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup (for natural sweetness!)


Blend it right up and put on a cape or something.
