Here are the ingredient for the first batch of smoothies we made today. Missing are the blueberries and a touch of water. And yes your eyes aren't playing trick on you there is spinach in that lovely, heavenly tasting pink smoothie. We also used kefir instead of milk for a nutritional boost. The brewers yeast was my own addition. It is a great source of protein, iron and essential amino acids.
Here is the recipe that we used for our first batch of smoothies:
1 handful of spinach
3 Tbsp orange juice concentrate
1 cup kefir
1/4 cup water
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blueberries
1 Tbsp brewers yeast
I put the spinach and orange juice concentrate in the blender and let it whirl. This helps make sure that the spinach is completely pureed. Next add the kefir, fruit, and water is necessary. Lastly add the brewers yeast.
The girls liked it so much we had to make a second batch. This time we added a Tbsp of coconut oil for added benefits and a smidgen of agave nectar for sweetness.
As you can see Rebekah really enjoy her smoothie. We plan to make these a part of our weekly breakfast menu. All of us were surprised at how filling they were.
