This Frozen Spinach Smoothie Recipe with Fruit makes a very healthy green smoothie drink with spinach and fruit.
The spinach flavour in this drink combines amazingly with the strawberries and peaches to make a smoothie very pleasing to the palate!
A Great recipe for a dieter's smoothie with veggies and fruit.
My daughter, Karissa, made this recipe with peaches and strawberries, but you can substitute other fruit you may have on hand instead.
1/3 pkg. frozen chopped spinach (100 grams) (About 1 cup)
1 cup frozen sliced peaches
1/2 cup frozen sliced strawberries
1/2 cup - 1% fat - cottage cheese
1/2 cup - 0% fat - Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. liquid honey or 1 packet stevia
3/4 cup water
2 tbsp. whey powder
Remove the spinach from the freezer a few hours prior to making this smoothie so it is semi-frozen to make it easier to use in the blender.
Add the spinach, peach slices, sliced strawberries and the water to the blender, and blend well until all the large pieces are chopped finer.
Add the cottage cheese and the Greek yogurt to the blender and blend.
Add the honey or stevia powder and blend again until a smooth consistency is reached. You may need to add a little more water.
Yield: about 2 cups of healthy green smoothie!
Smoothie Making Tip
If you enjoy spinach smoothies, why not prepare the spinach in advance, so that it is ready to add to the blender, with the portions already measured out.
My daughter likes to add frozen spinach to her smoothies.
To save time, she purchased a package of fresh baby spinach.
She then packaged it in 1 cup (firmly packed) portions, and stored it in the freezer.
Next time she is ready to make a healthy green smoothie with spinach, the spinach is ready to be popped into the blender!
