Green Smoothie

Ok, I have to admit that I saved the best for last.  Behold, the color for “Smoothie Week” – GREEN!

This smoothie happens to be modeled after one of my favorite fresh juices called “clean green” from a neighborhood coffee shop.  When I first saw it being served there, I realized they weren’t kidding with the name.  My camera was having a bit of trouble with the tone-on-tone, but have no doubt, this smoothie is GREEN!  :)

But have no fear — this smoothie is fantastic.  The simple fruit combination is fresh, sweet and delicious.  And — hard as it may be to believe — you honestly can’t taste the spinach.  Kind of crazy.  Without a doubt, though, the best part of this smoothie that you cannot leave out is the extra ginger.  The kick it gives at the end is no less than perfect.

I make this specific smoothie at least once a week.  It truly is a favorite.  Enjoy!!  :)

Ali’s Tip:

I usually double the recipe when I make it to store half in the freezer for another day.  It actually makes great leftovers!  :)
