Pump Up Your Smoothies

Spinach. It’s rich in vitamin K, boosts the immune system, and can protect against heart disease, lung and prostate cancers, and other degenerative diseases. Plus, it’s low-cal and tastes good. Add a cup (or more) of spinach to your smoothies and you’ll not only increase your daily vegetable intake but also reap all the health benefits. Here are two recipes I’m crazy for right now.

Berry Pine Smoothie
1 cup water
1/2 cup pineapple
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 cup spinach
1 Chobani non-fat Green Yogurt (single serving)

Makes 2

Green Apple Sour Smoothie
1 cup water
2 Granny Smith Apple (chopped and cored. keep peel)
1-2 cups spinach
1 Chobani non-fat Greek Yogurt (single serving)

Makes 2

These recipes are high in protein, low in fat, low-cal, and includes veggies without tasting like V8. Enjoy!
