Green smoothies -- you're either in the make-them-all-the-time-camp, or you haven’t yet taken the leap because, let’s be honest, they look a little freaky.
I now find them appetizing. I guess it’s what you’re used to.
Anyway, I made this up in an attempt to get the 2-year-old to drink some cantaloupe after he refused to eat it with breakfast. The kid who hates fruit is at it again, this time turning his nose up to one of the only fruits he’s eaten since the beginning. Sigh.
Unfortunately the smoothie didn’t work with him, but I loved it! So simple and light, it made a great quick breakfast on a busy morning.
Here’s what I did...
- 100g ripe cubed cantaloupe
- 1 small orange, peeled
- 50g raw spinach
- ½ cup (114g) plain non-fat Greek yogurt
- 10 ice cubes
Put the cantaloupe, orange and spinach in your blender. Just don’t do what I did and put the spinach near the blades. The melon will give you more than enough liquid to get everything moving.
Blend until smooth.
Once you have your green smoothie fruit base then add the yogurt and ice cubes. Blend again.
Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!
