Green Power Smoothie
June Dairy Month continues and I’ve got another delicious and nutritious recipe for you guys today! I love making smoothies and smoothies for breakfast are becoming quite ideal for me these days. Most mornings I am rushing to get ready and get downstairs with the baby to give her her breakfast before leaving for work. I try to eat while I feed her, but I usually end up with soggy cereal because God forbid I make her wait 2 seconds before shoveling more oatmeal in her mouth!
This green smoothie is the perfect breakfast. It’s packed with everything you need to start the day off right: spinach, banana and pineapple for sweetness, oats, protein-packed Greek yogurt, and calcium-packed milk thanks to Calcium Plus Milk from my friends over at Shamrock Farms! This Calcium Plus Milk is the perfect way to get some extra calcium in and is so creamy tasting, even the fat free version!

- 2 cups spinach
- 1/4 cup oats
- 3/4 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
