Spinach and Citrus Green Drink

Ever since Chris gifted me with a fancy blender for my birthday earlier this year, I have been having lots of fun trying out new recipes.  I use the countertop machine almost every day, making quick sorbets, pureeing soups and whirling up smoothies.  A couple months ago I posted a recipe for Maureen’s Green Drink, and now I have moved on to a slightly modified version.  Unlike traditional “juicing”, my version does not strain out all the natural fiber, so I am fuller longer and I don’t get a massive sugar rush.

This recipe is sweet and tart and totally refreshing.  I insist on starting every day with one!

Spinach and Citrus Green Drink

Juice from 1-2 oranges

Juice from 1 lime

A piece of ginger, peeled (use as much as you like – I like ginger a LOT so I use at least a 1″ piece)

A small piece of fresh tumeric, peeled (optional because it can be hard to find, but if you see it at the store, grab it!)

1 green apple, peeled and sliced (I usually leave half the peel on)

2-3 big handfuls of baby spinach

Combine everything in a blender and whir until it is smooth (you might need to add a little water). Serve over ice.
