Blueberry Citrus Smoothie
We had a bunch of frozen blueberries given to us recently, so I came up with this yummy summer smoothie recipe to help us use them. (Also a great way to use spinach or mixed greens that are wilting in the fridge!) It’s become a favorite now in our family. This recipe makes 2 smoothies.
3-4 T. lemon juice (depending on how much you like)
2-3 C. spinach (cups packed down; ok if it’s started to wilt too!)
2 C. ice
1/2 C. applesauce
1/2 an orange (peeled; or one small cutie)
1/3 C. apple juice concentrate (or more if using regular apple juice)
2 C. blueberries (frozen)
Blend lemon juice first (this helps keep everything else from sticking super bad!). Next, blend spinach and ice (do this before adding other stuff so spinach doesn’t get stuck at the top and ice gets blended really fine). Throw in everything else (except water) and blend. Add water as needed ’til smooth consistency.
