Deceptively Delicious Smoothie

A big thanks to my sister-in-law, Aunt-E, for the following "green" smoothie (but it actually comes out dark purple.)

1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries
1 banana
4 cups of fresh spinach
1 cup of water

Blend in a blender or food processor. Enjoy!
Serves 2

I "borrowed" this recipe from her great nutrition and fitness blog, "the woRD on fitness"
(March 22nd entry). Be sure to check it out!

The recipe is truly "deceptively delicious". I can attest to this because both Big Brother and Little Brother willingly and enthusistically drank it (Big Brother had seconds.)

Trust me, if my boys will drink a smoothie with spinach in it, then your kids will drink it, too (they have ultra-high-tech radar for that kind of thing.)

Have a good week,
Drink up!


  1. YAY! I'm so glad it went over well at your house! Thank you for posting this! love, aunt-e

  2. This is yummy. I had a taste of it at Aunt-E's house. I like spinach, but you would never know it's in there.
