::Green Smoothie Recipe::

I have been obsessed with making smoothies since I started counting calories again last week...
::I use Fat Secret to track mine, I love it:: 
I am already down 5lbs from last week! Amen!
Anyways I have been using smoothies for a great way to get my belly full!

Last week I was just making them with bananas, strawberries, coconut milk and ice.
But then I have been curious about making them with spinach, 
So I asked around to see what others were using
and tried it out for myself.
I just used my existing recipe and added spinach! 

Here is my new smoothie...
You will need: 
1-2 bananas (I did 1 because their carb content is so stupidly high)
6-8 strawberries
1/2 cup ice
1/2 cup coconut milk (I like the vanilla)
1 cup spinach 
Vincent was excited to get a GREEN smoothie...
It makes enough for me to have a large glass and the boys to each have a small serving

Cheers!

  5. I love green smoothies! I use a similar recipe but add greek yogurt. I was surprised when I first tried it because you don't taste the spinach at all!

  6. I made one similar a few weeks ago! My deal now is to make sure I get lots of protein so a Greek yogurt might be an addition. My mom puts tofu in hers! Crazy but you can't taste it!!

  8. I make the same smoothies and if I don't add a banana (I tried to omit it cause of the high calories for such a little thing) and it tastes way to spinach-y, so don't try it :) Good job on the 5lbs in a week!

  17. A diamond engagement ring is the must-have clincher for a man wanting to
    hear her say "Yes. By placing the ring on his soon-to-be-wife, the groom gives the world an outward demonstration that he not only loves his bride, but also can afford to marry her and take her from her father. Diamond solitaire rings encapsulate that magic of love.
