This is a variation of an Iron smoothie a friend posted on Facebook recently. The pineapple adds a sweetness to this. You could also throw in a fresh date if you need more too. But I love pineapple and mint as a combination and this smoothie, with the zingy lemon and mellow spinach leaves is awesome. I was feeling very flat this afternoon and decided to make this and see if it would help. Guess what? It did!
Throw out the chocolate and pick up the green smoothie. Yes. Will have to listen to myself more often 😉 (Not that I really eat chocolate anymore but you get the gist…).
1 cup spinach
1 green apple
1/2 cup pineapple
handful fresh mint leaves
1 T sesame seeds
1 cup water
It is rare that I enjoy smoothies. Especially green ones. I only post ones that I REALLY like and this is one of them 🙂
