Popeye Fruit Smoothie

Spinach is a super-food high in anti-inflammatory nutrients, vitamins, minerals and alkaline potential in the body. No wonder Popeye ate it to boost his strength. As a result, we try to include spinach in many of our meals, including our shakes. And while spinach doesn’t seem like it’d be a great smoothie ingredient, this shake tastes awesome as raspberries, goji berries and cashews lend their unique flavors to this drink. Ingredients Raspberries (frozen) 1 cup Spinach 1 cup Low-fat plain yogurt 1 cup Low-fat milk ½ cup Cashews ¼ cup Fruit-flavored whey protein (equal to 50 g protein) 2 scoops Fresh goji berries 2 tbsp Instructions Combine all ingredients in a countertop blender. Blend on high until mixture is a smooth consistency. Serves 1 large or 2 small.
