Smoothie: The Creamy Spinach Yellowgizer

I use my base smoothie recipe for all my daily smoothies, but I change the fruit additions and other veggies to change the flavor. This Green/Yellow energy booster was such a creamy and delicious delight. The recipe has milk or water listed for the liquid portion, but you can choose whatever you like. I prepare my smoothies with Unsweetened Almond Coconut Milk, I prefer the subtle addition of coconut and almond. I hope you give this one a try… enjoy!!

Health Highlights: Capsaicin, the substance in Cayenne Pepper that is responsible for the spiciness, can have pain-reducing effects, improve cardiovascular health, prevent ulcers, and clear up nasal passages. (The Healthy Green Drink Diet, 2012)
