Go Bananas!

My new favorite summer snack? A banana berry smoothie with spinach. It’s so quick and easy to make (but alas, a caveman could NOT make it because it requires a blender). This all-natural kick-starter is fabulous for many reasons. Not only is it a great source of antioxidants but the spinach ALONE is a rich source of:

Vitamin A, C, E, K, B2 and B6
Magnesium
Manganese
Folate
Betaine
Iron
Calcium
Potassium
Folic acid
Copper
Protein
Phosphorus
Zinc
Niacin
Selenium
Omega-3 fatty acids

Basically this snack is a vegetarian’s best friend…or any man’s best friend (and healthier than a salad in my case because I usually drench those in dressing).

Ingredients (makes 3 servings):
1.5 cups of milk
1 whole banana
10-12 frozen strawberries
Two handfuls of frozen blueberries
2-3 cups of spinach (be generous because you can not taste the spinach AT ALL)
5-10 cubes of ice (optional)

Voila! You no longer have to throw your money at Jamba Juice. Throw all these ingredients into a blender and blend the ice in last. Add a couple mints to your glass for extra freshness. Cheers.
