I've got to admit, I always liked the idea of smoothies, but didn't like all of the prep-work and cleaning-up afterwords, so I pretty much avoided making them because it took too much effort.
This recipe, I'm proud to guarantee, will take no longer than brewing a cup of coffee.
Not only is this smoothie packed full of anti-oxidants, fiber, iron, calcium, potassium and Omega 3's, it's energizing (thanks to the chia) and delicious.
Here's what you'll need:
1 cup spinach
1 tablespoon ground chia seed
1 tablespoon ground flax seed
1 teaspoon cod liver oil
cinnamon (just a sprinkle)
1 1/2 cups orange juice or orange juice blend (my favorite is orange, strawberry, banana)
Here's what to do:
1) Throw everything into your blender.
2) Blend. If you have a smoothie setting, now's the time to use it.
3) Pour and enjoy
* To clean up quickly, I immediately rinse my blender, add hot water and dish soap, press blend for a few seconds. Rub a sponge along the inside (after the blades have stopped spinning- of course), rinse and I'm ready for tomorrows smoothie!
So quick, so easy, so healthy and so very delicious!
