Updated January 15, 2013

Ingredients

  • 1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 medium banana, cut up
  • 1 1/4 cups Cascadian Farm® frozen organic strawberries
  • 3/4 cup orange juice

Steps

  • 1
    Microwave spinach as directed on box. Rinse with cold water until cooled. Drain, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.
  • 2
    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.
  • 3
    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.
