So..."green" drink

Doesn't this look delicious?
You'd never guess what's in it...

1. Fill a glass with half water, half orange juice. Pour a little in the bottom of the blender.
2. Fill the blender loosely with...SPINACH! That's right, spinach.

3. Add frozen berries (about 3/4 cup) and whatever other fruit you want. I added peaches because they looked oh-so-yummy at the store yesterday.

**TIP: You can buy frozen berries (Costco has the best deal) but this time of year, when you can buy fresh berries at such a great price, freeze them yourself. I wash them up, cut up my strawberries, and fill a Ziploc freezer bag with my own variety of berries - blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries.
4. For extra goodness, add some yogurt. These babies can be found at Costco and they are only 100 calories!
5. Pour in the rest of the juice and blend it all together.
Like I said, you would never guess what's in it. And maybe your kids won't either!

You really can't even taste the spinach. This is a great way to start your day and it makes enough for another glass with lunch or snack.
