Green Smoothie

So, on my quest to eat healthier, I found this smoothie recipe on Pinterest. Love that site! I decided to just buy the coconut milk. Because I don't have all day to make homemade and besides it would have been cheaper. So, that's what I did. But, I bought everything else as stated. Since then, I have swapped the organic yogurt for Greek yogurt and baby spinach for regular spinach. Again, it was cheaper. Also, I have added flax seed meal and honey. Although, you don't even notice the honey. I have added those last two because they are "fat releasing foods."

The original recipe is from the blog, Flour on my Face.

Here's how I prepare it:

1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 banana (original calls for frozen. why bother?)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (i just dump a 6 oz. container in)
2 handfuls of spinach
2 or 3 strawberries
2 cubes of ice
2 teaspoons of flax seed meal
a couple squirts of honey

You can make this up the night before so that's it's all ready for you to head out the door. It tastes just the same.

I have been drinking this a couple times a week since the second week of May. I feel healthy and I do believe my skin is thanking me. I am on a quest for more vegetable and fruit smoothies.
