Our green smoothies have never been actually green. I wimp out in the spinach department, and I love dark colored berries. However when reader Venessa sent us the recipe she got from her friend Natalie, we had to try it!
- 3 cups packed baby spinach
- 2 cups frozen peaches
- 1 cup frozen mango (or use fresh or more peaches)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 block silken tofu (I left this out)
I cut the recipe in half due to the size of my blender. Remember when I bought the blender and thought it was so awesome and that I didn’t “need no stinkin Blend-tec.” Well, I was wrong. The blender is already cracked! I really do need a Blend-tec!!
Anyway, back to the point. Delicious smoothie! TJ here had 4 dixie cups worth. I love the extra protein from the protein powder, tofu, milk, and yogurt. I love the good carbs from the fruit and the juice. An altogether great mix!
