A great way to eat your spinach! This is really good tasting, low cal and very healthy! I know it sounds very weird, but give it a try. My 11 year-old gives it thumbs up, too.

Yum! We used apple juice, 2 room temp bananas, frozen bagged spinach, and a kid strawberry yogurt. My 3 girls are all loving it! Even my sweet-toothed picky 5 year old said, "mommy, this is awesome!" and they are all headed to the kitchen for 2nds!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups fruit juice (I like orange-pineapple)
  • 1 frozen banana, cut into chunks
  • 14 cup yogurt (I use plain fat-free)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach

Directions

  1. (Peel the banana BEFORE you freeze it!).
  2. Pour juice into a blender jar.
  3. Add chunked banana, yogurt, and spinach.
  4. Blend thoroughly on High.
  5. Enjoy! This recipe obviously can be tweaked to your heart's content -- add other fruit, use flavored yogurt, or even add ice cream or sherbet. It's an especially good way to use fruit that's slightly past its prime.
