Spinach Smoothies!

 I have loved spinach smoothies for years now yet we haven't ever own a proper blender! This weekend I had enough and just went ahead and bought one from Tesco. If you want to see it in action, the video is here. On Sunday, Sienna and I enjoyed out smoothies so I thought I'd share the recipe!

For a 'basic' spinach smoothie you can use bananas, milk, spinach and whatever fruit you like. I don't measure it, I just eyeball it and go by taste. We like to add some extras into our ingredients; peanut butter & cinnamon. If the fruit is a little sour I sometimes add in some agave nectar to just sweeten it but this time it didn't need it!

I love to serve mine in my gorgeous Mason drinking jars from drinkstuff. I also found out these straws I had left over from Sienna's first birthday party! How cute does it look? These jars are so in right now and I have been using them for all my drinks. So much prettier than regular glasses!

I can't for summer to come so we can drink smoothies all the time and not have to put the heating on after finishing them! I can make a massive batch and serve in this drink dispenser we have, also from drinkstuff.

I'm so in love with these items! They are just perfect for summer drinks/parties and I think this may even tempt me to try and make some homemade lemonade. Imagine it full with the fizz and then slices of lemon, it would look gorgeous!

Do you love smoothies? Ever tried a spinach smoothie?
