I've been trying to eat better over the past few weeks. Green smoothies have made their way into my (almost) daily menu. Among other things, I've noticed a boost in my energy level! I'm not dragging during the days!
Here's how I'm prepping my smoothies.
When I come home from the store with some spinach, I get out my ingredients, measure them out into freezer bags and pop them in the freezer. I just move one to the fridge when I get ready for bed and by morning the fruit has thawed just enough to blend well. All I have to do is add my water and pull out my favorite kitchen tool, my immersion blender.
In the picture I have a mix of strawberries, blueberries, and cranberries. This is yummy, but the recipe below is my favorite. The mixed berries add in raspberries and blackberries. Delicious!
