During our summer road trip from Prague to Valencia, we had a little pit stop at our dear friend’s home in Saarbrucken. A’s home is absolutely cozy and stylish. Her hosting skills are beyond gracious and our tummies are always well nourished.
One morning at breakfast, I noticed that she was drinking out of a tall glass filled with a thick dark green liquid. Not exactly the most appealing vision for your first meal of the day. Of course I was curious, so I had to ask “What is THAT?”
“My spinach smoothie,” she quickly replied, “Want some, there’s some left in the blender.”
As mentioned, I was curious. So I poured what was leftover into a smaller glass and gulped it down. Surprisingly, it didn’t taste as bad as I thought it looked. It was actually the opposite. It was deliciously refreshing.
Since that day, I can’t start my mornings without a spinach smoothie. I’m absolutely addicted.
Spinach Green Smoothie (So easy to prepare too!)
1 cup of fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup of berries or whatever other fruit you have in stock
1/2 cup of your choice of liquid: water, soy milk, kefir, rice milk, milk, coconut water or juice
Optional: spoonful of chia or flax seeds
Place all the ingredients into a blender.
Blend and enjoy!
