Juicing seems to be so popular with juice bars popping up in grocery stores, in small towns, on food trucks, and even at street fairs. The newest trend is green vegetable juicing and admittedly I was weary of trying it. I am not a huge fan of the typical “Green Smoothie”, there is just too much raw spinach and kale for me, but I do like the spinach when mixed with strawberries, bananas, watermelon, cantalope or other sweet fruit. I sometimes add a bit of agave nectar to sweeten it up which is against all the juicing rules but oh well. Try this one, below. It’s pretty and tasty and my kids make it on their own and it certainly has lots of vitamins and minerals in it.
Here is the perfect recipe for a Strawberry Spring Time Smoothie
1 cup of fresh strawberries
½ cup of ice
½ cup of spinach
½ cup of baby carrots
¾ cup of water
1- 3 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey, optional
Blend and serve. Delicious. Fresh.
