Orange You Happy I made a Green Smoothie?

After my run yesterday, I was craving something citrus-y and sweet. The perfect solution? This smoothie!

It’s full of tropical orange flavor with the orange juice and orange, but also sweet and cold because of the frozen banana and peaches! The spinach makes the smoothie even healthier, but doesn’t change the flavor at all (only the color)! Whenever you’re craving something sweet and refreshing, give this smoothie a whirl!

Orange You Happy I made a Green Smoothie

  • 1/4 cup orange juice (you can add more or less depending on how liquid-y you like your smoothie)
  • 1 banana, frozen (to make the smoothie thicker)
  • ½ orange
  • ½ cup peaches
  • ½ cup spinach (or another leafy green)

Directions: Put everything into a bender (I used a Vitamix). Give it a whirl. For the Vitamix, I powered the speed up to 10 and then put it on high until everything was well-blended. Then pour the smoothie into a glass and enjoy!!! Serves 1.

Anyone have any fun weekend plans? I’m going to try out hot yoga for the first time! No matter what you do, have a lovely weekend!
