Blueberry-Spinach Protein Shake

I have been dying to try a shake with some fresh spinach in it because quite frankly I haven't had very many greens lately. When you're eating such a small amount it's hard to fit it all in. And quite frankly, my intestines are screaming for a little extra fiber if you know what I mean. So,try this, it's delicious.
1 oz of baby spinach
1 oz of blueberries (I used fresh, but read my notes below, frozen may be better)
1 cup of your favorite % milk
2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder
2 packets of splenda Blend until smooth.

I didn't have enough room in my little blender cup to put ice in this one, but I definitely wanted it colder. I put my fresh blueberries in the freezer to help with that and making milk ice cubes might even been another good option. Either way this was super delicious and had 45 grams of protein!


  1. You could also try banana in with spinach - you only taste the banana!! xxx

  2. I love Spinach!!! When I turned 34 (38 now), for whatever reason I craved spinach. Odd too cuz up until that point I never gave it a thought but something kicked in at 34 and out went lettuce in came spinach!!! Don't know who deserves the credit here...sorry... But another banded blogger had mentioned the site of fun good healthy food and her blog had a spinach protien shake on it recently too!!!

    P.S. I finally jumped in and started a blog!!

  3. I am OBSESSSSSED with spinach. I mean uber obsessed. I am one week pre-band and was so worried I wouldn't get my green crack in. I sneak it my eggs, on my pizza, in my pastas, shrink it down, etc.. I eat at least 2 bags a week. So I love this idea! Also - have you heard about the Green Monster Movement?? Google Green Monster smoothies. AMAZING recipes!!!
