Sweetened with strawberries and orange juice, this green smoothie is a great way to start your day!

Ingredients

1
box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
1
medium banana, cut up
1 1/4
cups Cascadian Farm® frozen organic strawberries
3/4
cup orange juice

Directions

  • 1 Microwave spinach as directed on box. Rinse with cold water until cooled. Drain, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.

Tips  

For food safety reasons, frozen vegetables must be cooked.

While fresh strawberries can be used in this recipe, we like using frozen berries to make the smoothies thicker and colder.
