Daniel Plan Smoothie Recipe

my favorite Daniel plan smoothieMy main breakfast while on The Daniel Plan has been a smoothie and an egg.  I don’t like to eat raspberries, blueberries, or blackberries.  I think it’s a texture thing with the raspberries and blackberries.  I don’t like the grit.  BUT if you take those berries and blend them up I will drink them.  And happily so.  So in an effort to get the great nutrients in the berries into my diet I have been making a lot of smoothies.  Here’s my favorite recipe that I’ve come up with:

Berry Smoothie

  • 3/4 cup of ice
  • 1/2 a frozen banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen berries {blackberries, raspberries, blueberries}
  • a handful of baby spinach leaves
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

Put the ice in the blender first, then the banana, berries, and baby spinach leaves. And for those of you who are squeamish about drinking spinach, you can’t taste it at all.  I promise.

This smoothie is well beloved by the animals in our home as well.
