lean and green

I've read so much about adding spinach to a shake but I've been afraid to try it for a variety of reasons (I love spinach, but will it taste weird in a shake?).
I got the courage to try one and here's how it turned out!

 It blended up pretty well once I added a bit more milk to the top.

 I served my shake along side a homemade banana nut muffin!

The verdict: as you can see my shake is green (one of the things I was scared of). The ones I saw on other blogs weren't green, so I'm not sure how this happened. You can't taste it though! Which is great.

The Lean Green Shake

1 cup skim milk (more or less depending on how you like your shake and how it's blending)
1 dash cinnamon
1 tbps freshly ground flax seed
2 tbsp rolled oats
1 frozen banana
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 large handful fresh baby spinach

Blend until smooth!

Have you ever tried spinach in your shake?

  1. I've been debating trying it! I've been putting lots of spinach in our dinners for a while now, I love it.

    Right now I'm more just obsessed with fruit smoothies - lots of strawberries, bananas, raspberries, cucumber and a splash of vanilla!

    Glad yours worked out, it looks yummy!!
