Spinach is a power food for all kinds of reasons, and I’ve recently discovered coconut oil/milk and flaxseed can do wonders as well! So, I figured I would try to combine them into a smoothie. The result turned out pretty sweet…
handful of frozen raspberries
handful of fresh spinach
3 spoonfuls of plain Greek yogurt (my favorite is Greek gods)
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed
1) put all ingredients in blender or smoothie maker (I love my Magic Bullet!)
2) the amount of coconut milk can vary depending on how thick or thin you like your smoothie…suggestion: fill it to cover half your other ingredients
3) blend to desired consistency & enjoy!
