( - As we enter the third week of January, many of us tend to let our New Year's resolutions drop in priority. Often, time is a deciding factor - grabbing a meal from a fast food drive-thru on the way to work is a lot quicker than making a vegetable omelet at home. In an effort to help you continue to commit to adopting healthier lifestyle behaviors, we would like to share a smoothie recipe from our Super Smoothies Recipe Booklet.Smoothies are easy to make and a terrific way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. By using a blender to purée ingredients, you take care of the first step in the digestion process and make it easier for your body to absorb the nutrients.

Don't let the color scare you away! This smoothie is as delicious as it is healthy! It's perfect for breakfast on-the-go or a midday snack.Basic Green Smoothie
Preparation Time: 5 MinutesIngredients:
1 ripe banana

1 handful of fresh baby spinach
