Healthy Recipe - Spinach Smoothie

With summer almost here, everyone is trying to be healthy lately.  I have been experimenting with healthy smoothie recipes for the last few weeks.  A friend of mine gave me a recipe she found off pinterest using mangos and fresh spinach. 

I altered it by adding skim milk instead of water for a creamier taste.  I used frozen peaches instead of mangoes and added strawberries and a banana.  I freeze the fresh spinach leaves so they last longer, I also found that they don't make the entire smoothie green this way!  I know it seems silly, but my boyfriend and I are not fans of all green drinks.  This way we got all the nutrients with only green specs in our smoothies! 

5 ice cubes
1/2 cup skim milk
5 strawberries
cup of frozen peaches
1 banana
2 handfuls of frozen spinach leaves
Blend and enjoy!  This recipe makes two large servings.  This smoothie is perfect for breakfast or even an afternoon snack.
