In the depths of winter, after months of comfort food, I find myself craving veggies and fruit. In the cold weather season I am often making more starchy heavy foods, and vegetables are sometimes forgotten. In an effort to integrate more fruits and vegetables into our diet I have been making smoothies for me and my husband. I keep all of the ingredients in the freezer, so that I have them on hand. I use different ingredients almost everytime, so that I dont get bored with one flavor. The staples of my smoothies are: spinach, yogurt, banana and carrot juice. Todays smoothie included:
Increments will depend on how much you want to make. I filled a four cup liquid measuring cup with my frozen fruit, and that made two large glasses. Feel free to experiment with adding the fruit that you like. No matter what I have tried I have not had a bad result. The smoothies never taste “healthy” and would be great for kids.
