Sometimes nothing tastes better than good Greek yogurt, fruit and a touch of milk. This time though I wanted a green smoothie.
Have you ever heard of them? I have for a while now, but never got around to tasting one or even trying to make one. Today was that day!
This is what I had on hand to blend together:
- 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
- 1/2 to 1 cup of milk (I didn't have juice)
- 1 & 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup of frozen strawberries (the last little bit in the freezer)
- 1/4 cup of frozen mango (I probably could have added more)
- 2 large handfuls of washed fresh spinach
I put the milk and yogurt in first, then I added frozen fruit with spinach on top, and pulsed to get it worked in. Then I blended until it was all smooth.
It was so good! I didn't even taste the spinach, and I probably wouldn't mind even if I did. Next time I may add a little more of the green stuff and try different recipes. Yum!
Here are some bloggers that I read and enjoy seeing their recipes (both smoothies and cooked foods).

I know there are others which are slipping my mind currently. Feel free to post suggestions in the comments.
So there you go. After finally trying a green smoothie I think I'll keep up with this delicious healthy habit! Thanks to Kath and Sara for your inspiration!
