500 Calories No.2

One of my favorite recipes to make on an intermittent fasting day is a green smoothie.  I know they are all the rage these days but that’s not why I make them!  I find it hard to fit in all of my vegetable servings in a day and if there is a way to disguise them, I am all for it.  And even the hubby will eat this because the color isn’t that of grass (adding berries is the trick).  Also, adding avocado does wonders for the texture- it makes the smoothie extra creamy but I promise you won’t even taste it!  So here it is- my favorite green smoothie.

Green Smoothie

makes 2 servings

1/2 avacado

1 cup spinach

1 apple

2 carrots

1/2 cup frozen mixed berries

1 cup water

Combine all ingredients in blender.  Blend for as long as it takes to get the desired consistency (you may need to add extra water).

Each serving is only 135 calories and is packed with nutrients!
