Wild Spinach-Strawberry Green Smoothie

A celebration of early summer

6 Comments »

This Wild Spinach-Strawberry Green Smoothie is a wonderful way to celebrate the last few weeks of Spring’s most tender baby greens and also begin enjoying the arrival of early summer strawberries on the East Coast.

Wild Spinach-Strawberry Green Smoothie

Serving Size: 1

Ingredients

1 cup wild spinach, stems removed (baby spinach, or curly dark spinach would also work)

1 cup fresh strawberries

4 ounces water, filtered

3-4 ice cubes

1/8th TEAspoon Stevia (honey or agave nectar would also be nice)

Directions

Combine spinach, strawberries, water, ice and Stevia into a blender. Combine well. Pour into a glass and enjoy!


Notes

Stevia is a plant native to Central and South America. It is 300 times as sweet as sugar, but has zero calories. A little Stevia goes a long way. I recommend the Nu Naturals brand of Stevia in powdered form. Stevia can be found in most grocery stores as well as on Amazon.com.

I have added the oh so delicious coconut yogurt to my banana spinach smoothie and turned my breakfast into dessert. Fabulous, thanks for the tip, amazed I could find it here in Wisconsin.
