This is a combo my 2 1/2 year old DD came up with. I let her choose what she wanted in the smoothie and just threw it all together. She's a pretty good cook for a 2 1/2 year old, it turned out well. The addition of spinach leaves was my input merely for extra nutrition, these are optional.
- 1 nectarine, stone removed
- 6 strawberries, hulled
- 1⁄4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1⁄4 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1⁄3 cup cranberry-apple juice
- 8 -10 baby spinach leaves
- Blend all ingredients until smooth.
Delicious and easy to prepare the night before for a breakfast on the run - that is in the car or once I get to work. I'm always glad of another smoothie recipe, so that I can vary them. With summer fruits so delicious right now this was great. I used a low-fat yoghurt, which I use only in smoothies: otherwise it's Greek yoghurt and as a baby spinach lover just had to include those. They certainly ensure some added nutrition. This was delicious but next time I make this I'm going to follow DuChick's suggestion and add some flax seeds and maybe also one of my favourite additions - for added nutrition and textural variation - some sunflower seeds. Thanks for sharing, **Mandy** and dd! Made for Gimme 5.
Hats off to your aspiring young chef, Mandy! She knows what she's doing! I found this combination very refreshing and had the perfect amount of sweetness. I didn't peel the nectarine and added a tablespoon of milled flax seed for extra fiber. Also used FF vanilla yogurt. No trace of the spinach showed in this deep purple healthy treat. Thanks Mandy and DD!
amazing! i actually added kale instead of spinach and it still tasted great!! the only thing was it had a slightly green cast to the purple so i dont know if i could get away with giving it to my sister or anything...
