After being so sick last week one of the things I had to do was to reintroduce simple bland foods back to my stomach, but I did not mind as that’s all I wanted to try.
The next step after several days was to gain my strength back and to do that I decided to add green drinks to my diet by using my blender to make them. I found a great recipe that contained spinach, blueberries, bananas, greek yogurt, ginger and POM, short for pomegranate juice and also green tea. All ingredients are considered super foods and after the first one I could feel the difference in my energy. There are so many versions of green drinks, smoothies and all can be made with a blender. There a healthy way to help lose weight as a meal replacement or snack, great way to to get the veggies in the kids, they love the smoothies.
1 cup baby spinach loosely packed (organic)
1 sm frozen banana, slice before freezing
1 cup frozen berries, unsweetened
Fresh ginger root (1/2″ slice)
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, plain, 0% fat
1 cup chilled green tea (unsweetened)…home brewed is best.
1/2 cup pure pomegranate juice
1 cup crushed ice

Toss all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. The blender will be filled to the top with loads of super foods, so be sure the lid is on securely before blending. It will take a minute or so for all the ingredients to blend completely.
For a thinner smoothie, add more green tea. Enjoy and reap the benefits!!! Read more at Skinny MS
