Healthy Strawberry Smoothie Recipe.

Green smoothie with strawberries and spinach

When I'm trying to eat healthfully, one of my go-to breakfasts is a green smoothie. I really like them because they pack a huge number of nutrients and are easy to make. They also look pretty nice!

This particular green smoothie uses strawberries, nonfat Greek yogurt, spinach, and milk. That's it!

Nonfat Greek yogurt

Fresh sliced strawberries

I used one cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt (130 calories), 1 cup of washed, sliced strawberries (50 calories), 1 cup washed, uncooked spinach leaves (10 calories) and 1 cup of skim milk (90 calories). Put everything in a blender, and there you have it! A delicious, filling breakfast high in protein and fiber.

Normally, I wouldn't put my beverages in a mason jar. Those who know me are aware I'm not really a fan of the mason jar trend. However, my usual smoothie bottle wasn't clean and I was running out the door on my way to work, so I grabbed the first thing I could find. The mason jar actually sealed pretty well. Maybe I'll give it another chance.

Want a dairy-free version of this beverage? I also really love green juice. I've often made a similar recipe, omitting the yogurt and milk, and using just spinach, strawberries (or other berries), a frozen banana, and water. If the berries are frozen, too, it makes a really nice treat for a hot day.

What are your favorite smoothies? I'd love to hear your ideas!

Stay warm out there today!
