Ever tried spinach in your fruit smoothie?

My little sisters and I are always making fruit smoothies in the summer.  They are a great way to cool off when it’s blazing hot outside.. and healthy too!  One day, my baby sister told me that our aunt made her a really tasty smoothie with spinach in it…  I called my aunt for the recipe to try it, and to my surprise, it tasted really good!

Aunt Janie’s Smoothie recipe:

Ingredients:

1 cup-1.5 cup orange juice

1 bananna

1 cup-1.5 cup of fresh strawberries

1 handful of spinach

ice

Instructions:

Put the orange juice in a blender.

Add the banana, strawberries and spinach.

Add ice last.

Blend all ingredients together.

Enjoy!

**For an extra creamy taste, I like to add a few scoops of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt. :)
