apple cinnamon green smoothie recipe

Since I’m doing my fitness challenge, one thing that is sometimes difficult for me is getting enough veggies in my diet. I love vegetables, but for whatever reason unless I’m eating a salad, getting in four full servings or more is something I really have to work at some days.

This is one of the many reasons why I love green smoothies. I can load them up with veggies and fruit, and drink down at least one good serving as a snack or supplement to my meal without even thinking about it.

Plus since this is a holiday challenge, I figured I would serve up a smoothie with a little Christmas flair. Makes a great snack, meal replacement, or heavens, I even would use this to fool myself I’m having dessert!

Ingredients

1/2 an apple, cored
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
3 tablespoons oatmeal
1 big handful of spinach

Directions

Put in blender…blend. That is all. ;)
