But. Well, my cravings don't exactly call for spinach. Ever.
In light of this and the perhaps even more pressing need for a quick breakfast in the morning with minimal - read zero - effort, I have jumped on the bandwagon. The green smoothie has entered my life.
Three parts veg to one part fruit, add a splash of water... green gold, indeed. It's quick. It's easy. It's surprisingly delicious. Enough to get me going in the morning - so much so that I almost don't need my morning diet coke... almost. It keeps me going all the way until lunch, which in my stomach's world is a tall order, indeed. And, it's good for me.
If you hear stunned silence, it's me.
It looks funny, this. But I can't imagine I'm going to be walking away from this little lady anytime soon. And neither should you.
2 large handfuls of fresh spinach
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup frozen peaches
1/2 cup cold water
Blend until smooth. Makes ~2 cups of smoothie goodness.
Make ahead and freeze if desired.
Sip and be amazed.
