Drink your greens!


Here’s a simple way to get more greens into your diet! Drink them!

Photo and Recipe by Melody Polakow

For a basic green smoothie you need:

1 frozen banana

2 cups greens (baby spinach, lettuce) or 1 cup baby collards/kale

1 cup water, non-dairy milk or milk

Blend until smooth. Make sure to add the liquid to the blender first!

You can add any other fruit you have on hand as well.  Frozen pineapple is great!

The other day I was chatting with some people about green smoothies in South Boston.  We got some papayas in our $2 bag that week and one of the women was really excited to try the green smoothie for her and her granddaughter!
