Fruit and Veggie Smoothie Recipe

Fruit and Veggie Smoothie Recipe
What do you do to try to stay healthy during cold and flu season? I try to do the usual like getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, washing hands frequently and all that good stuff. But food intake is also important. Fruits and vegetables are chock-full of nutrients to boost our immune systems and keep us healthy. I like to start my day with a smoothie to make sure I am getting a bunch of fruits and vegetables. first thing in the morning. This is my typical daily smoothie, but it is easy to add or subtract ingredients according to what you have on hand.

For example, right now Cuties / Halos are in season, so I have been throwing one of those into my smoothie each day. If you are a person who likes drinks on the sweet side (like my hubby) you can sweeten up the drink by adding a small spoonful of frozen apple juice concentrate. There isn’t much nutritional value in that and it does add calories, but if it is the difference between drinking a smoothie and NOT drinking one – then go for it!!

1 BIG handful of spinach
3-4 baby carrots (optional)

 Place all in blender and blend until smooth.
