You’re 5 minutes and 4 ingredients away from this refreshing and healthy Cherry Spinach Smoothie. It makes a perfect breakfast or mid-day snack!
I am guessing I am not alone in trying to lose a few pounds before summer. As much fun as the winter was, now it is time to get back on track and adopt some healthy habits. Smoothies instead of chips for a snack is the way to go. Do you agree?
Ever since I got my super awesome Ninja Blender I instantly became a smoothie fan. I make smoothies almost daily and never get tired of experimenting with flavors. This Cherry Spinach smoothie is something I make repeatedly. The ingredients are simple and they create a wonderful texture and taste. All you need is some frozen cherries, spinach, banana and some milk.
If you don’t have frozen cherries, substitute them with strawberries; it will work just as well. Feel free to add a touch of honey if you like things on the sweet side. 🙂
As for the milk – the choice is yours. I enjoy almond and coconut milk the most, although soy, cashew or regular cow’s milk tastes great too. Which kind of milk do you prefer?
I like to drink smoothies before lunchtime after my morning workout. It feels so refreshing and filling, so I tend to eat less for lunch. By June I’ve set a goal to lose the 10 lbs I’ve gained through the winter and during the road trip. I’ll make sure to share my results! My strategy is simple: less fried and oily food, more smoothies and more frequent work outs. Stay healthy, friends!
