Make it Yourself: Fat Burning Smoothie

Pin It
 I decided to try something a little different in my smoothie today, SPINACH!
AND you can't taste it at all! (bananas mask the taste)

I used "Fresh Selections" though you can use any type and I often switch it up 

BONUS: The combination of strawberries, spinach and bananas are referred to as a great "fat burning" smoothie, as the ingredients aid in digestion and are healthy sources of essential nutrients.

Want to make it yourself? Keep reading below..


What you'll need:
1.Spinach
2.Strawberries
3.1 Banana
4. Orange Juice/or water
5.Ice

Blend it all together, the quantities are up to you and how much you want to drink, but I promise you it tastes great! It's always a treat  when something's delicious and good for you!!
