I have a little secret. Or maybe it's no secret at all...
But hear this: if you put raw spinach in a smoothie, you can't taste it and it doesn't affect the texture of the drink.
It's not that spinach tastes bad, but usually when thinking about smoothies, it's not the first ingredient to pop in your mind. But think about it - spinach adds nothing calorically, but adds a lot of extra vitamins and fiber you wouldn't get from fruit alone.
So I've developed this little almond/spinach smoothie I'm obsessed with! It tastes delicious and gives me & baby a ton of raw spinach (which has been a slight food aversion in pregnancy).
What you need:
In the blender, first put in your almond milk, Stevia, and almond butter. Then pack in the spinach (I use quite a bit). Finally, put the frozen banana, ice cubes, and any other frozen fruit you'd like to add. I think this order of ingredients is key. Having the heavy banana and ice on top pushes the spinach down once it starts blending.
