Sweetened with strawberries and orange juice, this green smoothie is a great way to start your day!
box (9 oz) Green Giant™ frozen chopped spinach
medium banana, cut up
cups Cascadian Farm® frozen organic strawberries
cup orange juice
Microwave spinach as directed on box. Rinse with cold water until cooled. Drain, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.
In blender, place 1/4 cup of the cooked spinach and remaining ingredients. (Cover and refrigerate remaining spinach for another use.) Cover; blend on high speed about 30 seconds or until smooth.
Pour into 2 glasses. Serve immediately.
For food safety reasons, frozen vegetables must be cooked.
While fresh strawberries can be used in this recipe, we like using frozen berries to make the smoothies thicker and colder.
