Saturday Morning Smoothie

Lazy Saturday mornings call for smoothies. Decadent, creamy, ice-cold smoothies. Smoothies that taste like I put a pie in the blender. Powered up with a handful of spinach and a few other superfoods, this glass definitely started the weekend on a good note 🙂

This smoothie took less than 10 minutes total to make, and that includes putting away everything I pulled out of the fridge, as well completing the dreaded washing-of-the-blender. 😉 Green smoothies are a magical thing.

Done, done, and done.
