Make a Healthy Green Smoothie

 

For a quick and healthy breakfast try a healthy green smoothie. This recipe is fresh and sweet but isn’t so heavy that it will weigh you down.  To prepare the smoothie, combine these ingredients in a blender:

 

1/2 apple (chopped)

1/2 banana,

1 cup spinach leaves

1/2 cup of water

*On days when I need an extra protein boost, I add one tablespoon of vanilla protein powder.

 

Time-saving preparation tip: I freeze bananas in advance so they are easy to grab and always available.  Just take 6-8 ripe bananas, peel them and cut them in half.  Lay them on a cookie tray and stick them in the freezer for about an hour.  When they are frozen throw them together in a baggie and put them back in the freezer.  They won’t stick together, and since they are already frozen they help keep your smoothies cold when you prepare them.
