After Halloween and a fairly unproductive, unhealthy weekend, my body was craving nourishment this morning. I needed something that was simple and that would help me fight off this cold. We had eggs for breakfast today, so I wanted something fairly light and easy for my morning snack.
Oranges and bananas blend nicely together and really overpower the spinach taste in this smoothie. I also love that this smoothie only has 3 ingredients in it – 4 if you want to count the cup of ice.
I wouldn’t have this smoothie as a meal replacement. I drank it at 11:00 for my mid morning snack on the way to pick my eldest up from school and I was hungry for lunch by noon. But it was exactly what I needed. I have a feeling I’ll be incorporating mandarin oranges into a lot of my smoothies these next couple of months.
- 1 cup frozen organic spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 mandarin oranges
- 1 cup ice
