Spinach in a smoothie...really?

Every time I mention using spinach in a smoothie I get weird looks. Yes, spinach in a smoothie is not only nutritious but delicious!! I know, it may be hard to imagine and the green color of the smoothie can be a turn off but seriously people, green smoothies are fantastic!

Benefits of spinach: Spinach is loaded with vitamins A, C, K plus fiber, magnesium, calcium, folic acid and iron. Spinach helps protect against osteoporosis, heart disease, several cancers & arthritis just to name a few.

Here's what you do:
Grab a few handfuls of spinach and throw into a blender with rice, soy or cow's milk, a tbsp of chia seeds and a handful of fruits. Just blend and enjoy!! That's it. Super easy and healthy.
