Power Greens Smoothie

Looking to get your greens in for the day? Your smoothie doesn’t have to taste like a salad. The key to this recipe is the apple juice and creamy avocado. 

Ingredients

2 cups apple juice

1 avocado, peeled and pitted

1 cup of spinach (fresh or frozen)

Directions

Combine ingredients in blender (add liquids first). Blend until smooth.

Greens Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Greens Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
