green is my favorite color & so is this smoothie.


take a little of this..
and a little of that..



throw it in the blender...
with a handful of spinach...




and wa la...
you end up with goodness.
that looks a little something like this.


I had always been so nervous to put spinach in my smoothie. I kept thinking the past few months that I would try a "green smoothie" but I never got the courage. I mean really putting leafy things in my smoothie sounds weird and not so good. It was one of those "trends" that wouldn't leave me. So.. what did I do? I caved. Boy! Am I glad that I did. It was heavenly. A perfect breakfast or lunch. SO filling, and left me full. In this particular one I put a handful of spinach, blueberries, raspberries, 3 strawberries, 1/3 cup Greek yogurt, a little milk, and 5 ice cubes. You really can put whatever you desire in it!  Seriously try it. Even if you don't really care for spinach. It's a great way to get your fruit and veggies in!!

That smoothie looks DELISH! Can't wait to try it out! :) I have really been loving the Yoplait smoothie mixes... but would like to try a smoothie with stuff I already have in my fridge!

Happy Thursday! XOXO, Stephanie @ Blonde Highlights

this has nothing to do with your post but last night I was watching the biggest loser and I'm not saying you're twins or anything, but in a way Anna Kournikova reminds me of you, some of her facial features...

I tried one of these last weekend, however it had Kale instead of Spinach in it! It was really good!

Now, I just need to buy the stuff to make them at home! :)
