So this green apple smoothie is not actually “green” from the green apple. It gets it’s vibrant green color from the addition of spinach. Now before you go clicking off this page, let me say this: don’t knock it ’til you try it.
Throwing a handful of green leafy vegetables in your smoothies is one of the best ways to boost your daily vitamin and nutrient intake. And, you really can’t even taste it when you combine it with the right fruits. This apple smoothie also has frozen peaches in it. The result is a unique and delicious flavor that comes jam-packed with healthy stuff.
I do recommend getting organic frozen peaches (or fresh). That’s because conventionally-grown peaches have one of the highest pesticide levels of all fruits. So pay a few extra bucks so you don’t have to worry about growing a third arm some time down the road (kidding). I picked up a bag at my local Whole Foods.
Not only is this green apple smoothie tasty, it’s super low in calories. We’re talking just 75 per serving. There’s also zero grams of fat and a couple grams of fiber to help keep your belly feeling full longer throughout the day.
