I hate spinach! There, I said it. The first time I tasted spinach as a little girl I gagged! That being said, I know it is good for me. I know I should learn to like it. I can eat it occasionally in some salads that are covered with a sweet poppy seed dressing and covered in candied nuts. But, that kind of defeats the purpose of eating the healthy salad doesn’t it?
I have found a great way to make myself eat my greens! I have to hide it with a bunch of strawberries in a My Support Shake Smoothie. I actually add a power greens blend that I buy from Costco. It also includes kale and chard (no I do not like kale or chard any more than I like spinach). I was going to put up a picture of a green smoothie but frankly, mine is more pink than green.
I love starting my day with a great tasting nutritious smoothie and knowing that I did something good for my body and I drink one almost every day. The My Support Shake provides 50% of your Daily Value of 23 Vitamins & Minerals. Plus, you are adding the known health benefits of berries and spinach. The My Support Shake is also high in protein and fiber. When I drink this smoothie I am very full for hours. This is the ideal way to start your day.
Tiffany’s My Support Shake Get Your Greens Smoothie
2 cups Spinach (or Spinach Blend)
2 cups Berries
2 Scoops Vanilla My Support Shake
2 Cups Water
Ice (I only add ice if I use fresh berries if the berries are frozen ice is not needed)
Put all the ingredients in the blender and mix! Enjoy!!!
Tips: When I buy a big bag of spinach I use some of it fresh but, I divide the rest of it into Ziploc bags in two cup increments and freeze it. That way, it will not go bad too fast and I just have to pull one Ziploc bag out of the freezer and it is the correct amount for my smoothie.
