Recipe: Smoothies

I know smoothies are nothing new, but I’ve been completely obsessed and have been diligently making one every morning before work. I wanted to share some of my favorite combos.

Blueberry and Spinach Smoothie
1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1 small banana
1 large handful of fresh spinach
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
A few frozen mango chunks (makes it smooth and creamy)
Water, if needed to thin smoothie

Carrot, Pineapple and Tangerine Smoothie
1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1 small banana
1/2 cup shredded carrots, packed (I just buy the pre-shredded salad carrots)
2 small tangerines, peeled
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
Water, if needed to thin smoothie

Strawberry and Tangerine Smoothie
1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1 small banana
1 cup frozen strawberries
2 small tangerines, peeled
Water, if needed to thin smoothie

To make each smoothie, add the ingredients listed to a blender (add the yogurt and banana first). Blend until smooth. Add a few tablespoons of water while blending if the mixture is too thick. I usually add protein powder to my smoothies as well. My favorite is the women’s protein powder from Trader Joe’s.
