Blue Smoothie

Keeping the freezer stocked with frozen fruit and vegetables means a smoothie is never far out of reach for a midmorning or midday snack.

 

 

 

Ingredients

Serves: Serves 3

Serving Size: 1½ cups per serving

  • 2 cups frozen unsweetened peach slices
  • 2 cups tightly packed fresh spinach
  • 1 cup frozen unsweetened blueberries
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Directions

  1. In a food processor or blender, process all the ingredients until smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down the mixture if necessary.
  2. Pour into glasses
Cook’s Tip: You can substitute ½ cup frozen spinach for the fresh spinach. Just add a few more splashes of milk if necessary.
Cook’s Tip: Using frozen fruit eliminates the need for ice in a smoothie. You can easily use fresh fruit, however, by using
the same quantities of fruit and adding 1½ cups of ice cubes.
