Strawberry-Spinach Green Tea Smoothie

So, I’ll be straight about it: this smoothie rocks. Why? Because smoothies automatically rock, that’s why. They’re practically my whole life.Strawberry-Spinach Green Tea Smoothie (2)But in all seriousness (if that were possible?), this smoothie is loaded with nutrients. Strawberries have half the daily requirement of Vitamin C, which helps out in the immunity department (and also means antioxidants). Spinach is an awesome source of iron, and aย contender with bananas as far as potassium goes.ย Green teaย has a serious amount of antioxidants called catechins (which also absorb easier with Vitamin C). So, this is kinda like a win-win-win. Juuuust sayin’ ๐Ÿ™‚Strawberry-Spinach Green Tea SmoothiePlus, this smoothie is super refreshing for a long summer day. Yeah, I’m praying it lasts a little longer. Can you believe it’s already the middle of August? Ridiculous! ;(

Strawberry-Spinach Green Tea Smoothie (3)At least I have a couple more weeks to enjoy while they last. There’s plenty more smoothies to enjoy before the summer’s done! ๐Ÿ˜‰
