Each Tuesday I will share an easy, nutritious recipe so you can join me in the home-cooked self-care.
Confession: Green Smoothies strike fear in my heart.
A green smoothie?
I know, I wondered the same thing.
From what I gathered, it is different kinds of fruit AND vegetables tossed in the blender together to make a super-duper healthy concoction.
The vegetables (spinach, kale, chard) give the smoothie its green hue.
That’s the part that (until very recently) made me gag.
Who wants to drink their vegetables?
I’m not sure that I did, but since my Lame Food Confession I have been on a quest to get more into my body.
Sooooooo, here’s today’s recipe.
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 apple
- 3 big handfuls of baby spinach
- 2 cups of water
Blend until smooth, and enjoy!

Wow. Sounds really healthy and looks really good.
Another idea: add beets. Nugget has a really good veggie drink made w/ beets, apples, spinach and I forgot what else.
@jenna – BEETS! what a great idea!
berries and spinach! great idea. my sis makes an awesome smoothie with kale, ginger, a little lemon juice, peaches, pears, and apple (and water). it converted me to the idea of green smoothies.
@v3: i’m so gonna make that one. i now have purchase everything TWICE and ate it all (except the kale – right into the compost pile). now that i’m no longer a green smoothie virgin, i think this one is next!
i hope it photographs well!
