favorite smoothie #1

last Saturday, I packed the little one into his stroller and carted him over to the office where my blender has been hanging out doing nothing for about 2 years. at least it wasn't taking up space in our cozy kitchen (see previous post?). but I'm late to the smoothie craze! so we ran out to get it and get blending.

here's my latest and favoritest combination:
1 banana
1 c frozen blueberries
1/2 c frozen peach
1/2 c plain nonfat yogurt
1/2 c unsweetened applesauce
2 bunches of spinach (torn)
2 sprigs of mint (just the leaves!)
blend thoroughly and enjoy

I like them best after a good half day in the fridge for all the flavors to blend
(that also helps to tame the spinach which can otherwise dominate the fruit flavors)

I'm writing this recipe down. The spinach has intrigued me a lot and it looks really good. I rarely use my blender and smoothies are such a good idea. Thank you!
