Green Smoothie of the Week

Hey all!
So as previously stated, I’m going to post my favorite smoothies of the week. This weeks smoothie comes from http://www.twopeasinapod.com and it contains oranges, bananas, strawberries spinach and greek yogurt. I replaced the yogurt with almond milk and added a few splashes of vanilla extract. Below is the original recipe. Be sure to check out their website!
Have a great day!
Peace and Love ❀

Green Smoothie
Yield: 2 servings Prep Time: 5 minutes
This simple Green Smoothie is a great way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. I promise it is delicious and nutritious!

ingredients:
1 large orange, peeled and segmented
1/2 of a large banana, cut into chunks
6 large strawberries
2 cups spinach
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use Chobani 0%)
1 cup ice

directions:
1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

Note-I use our Blendtec Blender which is a very powerful machine. Make sure you use a powerful blender that will puree the orange, spinach, ice, etc. I like to store one serving of the smoothie in the freezer for later. Pour in an air-tight container and freeze. Make sure you take the smoothie out of the freezer about 30 minutes before you want to drink it. You can also store the smoothie in the refrigerator.
