This super-healthy smoothie is as tasty as it is good for you!

This super-healthy smoothie is as tasty as it is good for you!

The more frequently I drink this smoothie, the more I crave it! I think it has seriously become my go-to favorite.

I’ve been drinking one serving nearly every day for a week now and I feel terrific!

It’s super-tasty, really easy, and I promise that you cannot taste the spinach. Your kids won’t even know it’s in there if you don’t tell them. It’s that good!

Sweet Cherry Antioxidant Smoothie Recipe

Simply blend the following ingredients in a blender on high for approximately one minute:

–1 cup apple juice

–1 cup fresh blueberries

–1 cup frozen dark cherries

–1/2 frozen banana

–2 Tbsp. ground flax seed

–2 heaping handfuls of fresh baby spinach

Makes ~ one 20 oz. smoothie

Note: I tend to like my smoothies a bit on the runny side. If you prefer a creamier consistency, use frozen blueberries instead of fresh and/or use less apple juice. You could also dilute the apple juice with water to reduce the amount of sugar.
