Earth Week Green Smoothies



Naturally colored smoothies are a healthy way to celebrate our planet this April.  It takes some tweaking to create the earth motif; perhaps you could have an Earth Day contest to see whose earth looks the most recognizable.  Enjoy!


Ingredients:

  • Coconut milk
  • Fresh baby spinach leaves, preferably organic
  • Blueberries
  • Bananas and/or pineapple
  • Fresh lemon or lime juice, optional

How to make it:
  1. Blend two separate batches of smoothie mixture, one with milk, bananas, and spinach to stay green; to the second batch add blueberries until a bluish green color is achieved.  
  2. Pour the darker blue-green smoothie into drinking glasses or cups.  Drop the lighter green smoothie mix into the blue-green smoothie and with a straw or other untensil, shape the lighter green drops into continents.

Wow I would never have thought to use spinach in a drink. The blue and green must look great.
