Cooking with Kelly: Green Smoothie Recipe

My family knows I love food and bought me lots of foodie gifts for Christmas. They're very thoughtful and bought me some great items I'll get a ton of use out of. We got a new blender for green smoothies and I was really excited to try it out.

I knew I needed something that could blend liquids more effectively after my homemade frappuccino fail. I like the model my mom purchased because it wasn't too pricey and everything is dishwasher safe. I tested it out last night and made my favorite green smoothie recipe, which I enjoyed in a new mug that my mom also got me for Christmas. Doesn't it photograph well? This smoothie is even holiday colored!

Green Smoothie Recipe
1 cup baby spinach
1 medium banana
2 ounces orange juice
1/2 cup frozen strawberries

Place all ingredients in the blender. My new blender has a frozen drink setting, which worked perfectly. Enjoy immediately.
