So I get a wonderful weekly delivery of fresh organic produce from Abundant Harvest and lately there has been crinkle spinach in it (I didn't know there was more than just regular spinach out there) and I haven't known what to do with it (it's quite a bit thicker and bigger than normal spinach and my family doesn't like sauteed spinach either.

So what did I do this am...I made a green smoothie and it is DELISH!!!
So here is what I put in my 1st green smoothie
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup Trader Joe's 0% Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened frozen fruit
2 cups fresh spinach leaves (I removed the stems)
a little bit of vanilla liquid stevia
Let me tell you...you can't taste spinach and in this wonderfully filling breakfast and has 3 of your 5 daily servings of fruits & veggies. Even my kids liked it (I had them taste it before I told them what was in it). From what I have read on line it's really good for your body and skin also...
So this almost 2 cup smoothie is only 3 Weight Watcher's Momentum Points. Next time I think I will add in some ground flax seed. I am excited to try different combos.

We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...
