Blueberry & Peach Smoothie (with Hidden Greens)

Blueberry & Peach Smoothie (with Hidden Greens)

Blueberry & Peach Smoothie

I had been hearing left and right that adding spinach to smoothies was a wonderful thing. I was hesitant of course (as we all are about drinking greens I'm sure) But I decided to go for it- and this Smoothie was the base for it. This recipe has become a favorite- Its currently my default beverage and so far my favorite combination of fruit.

I found the secret to adding greens is knowing that they should be only 1/3 of the smoothie. The Other Remaining 2/3 can be practically any fruit combination and it will cover the taste . You may tolerate or enjoy more but for me this amount just works well. This smoothie is a lovely purple color- Your kids will NEVER know it contains spinach. I opted to use Unsweetened Almond Milk. This Combined with the flax gives the Smoothie a slightly nutty flavor that we really enjoy!

To make this smoothie- Just combine all the ingredients in a blender. Adjust sweetness to your liking and feel free to add supplements. This Recipe makes one 16 oz Smoothie. (You wont want any less)

Try Adding in Raw Kale, Chard or even Collard Greens!
