Super Food Quinoa Green Smoothie

Quinoa Green Smoothie

Serves: About 3 medium smoothies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 0!

Ingredients: 

1 cup kale
1 cup baby spinach
1 cup broccoli, steamed
1 carrot, steamed
1/2 banana
1/4 cup strawberries
1/4 cup blueberries
1/3 cup pineapple
1 cup yogurt (I used Greek Gods Greek Yogurt with Honey)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 avocado

Preparation:

1. If steaming veggies, place steamer over boiling water or place veggies in glass, microwave safe bowl and add a little water. Cover with plastic wrap, leaving one corner open and microwave for about 5 minutes.

2. Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. If necessary, continue to blend with an immersion blender.

Recipe adapted from Cook to Love.

I found this online and immediately wanted to try it. I have been looking for quinoa recipes since I’ve never cooked with it before and ways to eat healthier so, here you go! Mine was not nearly as pretty as the one in the recipe I found but it was definitely tasty. Nice and sweet. The reason I mention the immersion blender is because my blender isn’t that great and I really didn’t want chunks of anything in my smoothie. This made it work! I will definitely be using this for lunch for the week.

Taco!
