An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
So you’ve heard “juicing” is all the rage and wanna check out a nutritious smoothie option, but don’t have pomagranite seeds or kumquats? Or maybe you’re just looking for something a little less noxious than a pop-tart or egg McMuffin to start your day, but don’t wanna get too crazy health-nutty….This is the ‘starter’ smoothie for you. I always have these ingredients in my freezer, so that if the veggie drawer and fruit bowl are empty, I can still whip up a deliciously healthy smoothie! It’s my “go to”. My “safety smoothie”. My back up plan. My —I think you get the idea.
I recommend freezing any produce that’s about to go bad, so you can throw it in your own version of a “go to smoothie”—or you can let it rot in the fruit bowl and start a fruit fly farm! Your call.
Combine the following ingredients in a blender and drink it* in!
1 cup frozen organic spinach
5-6 frozen organic strawberries
1 cup water
1-2 dashes of cinnamon
1-2 Tbsp of honey or maple syrup
(* “it” being the amazing healthy, nutritional wonderfulness, but also the smoothie itself)
