Berry Energy Smoothie

 

While searching pinterest for something that would give me a boost in the morning, I found a few recipes I liked. After trying a few of them, I made some modifications and had an amazing smoothie that left me feeling not only full, but full of energy.

 

 Ingredients:

  • Yoplait berry smoothie mix (substitute 1 1/2-2 cups of mixed fruit frozen or fresh – frozen means you don’t need to add ice)
  • 2 cups of fresh spinach (don’t worry – you don’t taste any of it!)
  • 1 can V8 Fusion Energy drink (I used Blueberry Pomegranate)

Directions:

Combine ingredients in mixer. If it’s too thick after you add the can of V8, thin it out using water.  Makes 1 serving.

Nutritional Breakdown:

Let me know any drinks you’ve made that taste amazing and give you that much needed energy boost to get going in the morning.

  1. I’m so glad you added spinach to your smoothie!!! Its the best isn’t it!! I have a plethora of smoothie recipes – One of my favs is from IowaGirlEats (google her). I modified my recipe to be Frozen Banana, Peanut Butter, Spinach and left out the dairy – just water. But I imagine dairy would make it more creamier than the frozen banana already makes it!

    **Also – that is another one of my secrets. To lower the “watered down” consistency smoothies can tend to have, I just freeze my bananas. DUAL PURPOSE!

    PS: I use the same blender. Easy, breezy cleanup, right?! I use a baby bottle cleaner to get down there!

    **Just one more thing. All fruit/veggie smoothies are amazing right!?- just frozen fruit, water and a little honey goes a LONG way! 🙂
