Sweet Greens Spinach & Yogurt Smoothie – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Smoothies are a good thing, especially if you are on the run or feel a little depleted, as I do lately.  Spinach is a real immune booster that is loaded with iron that can increase your energy naturally.  Occasionally, I buy Sweet Greens juices at the grocery store, farmer’s markets or local juicery.  They do tend to get a little pricey, however if you bring them home and add a few other ingredients – it not only increases the volume to two smoothies for the price of one, but with a few additions of protein rich yogurt, and fresh spinach for fiber, it provides a more healthful meal.

If you do own a juicer at home, you can always juice an apple, a few stalks of celery and a half a cucumber, but if not – go with the already juiced Sweet Greens blend.  I love the mix of flavors in this green juice because it’s lightly sweet, without being a calorie bomb that will throw your sugar levels into hyperspace.  Also, it’s not a bitter veggie knockout, it has nice balance – a little of everything.

This Sweet Greens Spinach & Yogurt Smoothie is as simple as a quick puree in the blender.  I love to drink it for breakfast, and sometimes in the afternoon, if I skipped a meal…oops.  It would also be great to pack in a thermos and sip at work, or school.
