Do you like smoothies?? I love them – especially since they are the perfect breakfast when I want to keep it light or my go-to option in between meals when am hungry. You can make a smoothie out of just anything I believe. Keeping the right balance of nutrition is important, since we can also load it up with empty calories.
This strawberry and spinach smoothie is a great variation to have when strawberries are in season. They also have enough fiber due to the spinach added. And trust me – you do not taste the spinach in this. If your strawberries are sweet, you can completely skip the sweetener too. You can also add protein powder to this smoothie to make it high on proteins and a full meal too.
