Folic Acid Tastes Better In A Wine Glass

My sister introduced me to an easy and delicious green drink this summer and oddly enough this week, in the dead of winter, we both were craving the same green smoothie.  I hit the grocery store, stocked up on the supplies and we went to town with the blender.  If your kitchen is well stocked with healthy staples you probably can whip this up without a trip to the g-store.  This drink is as easy to make as 1-2-3...

1) Hand full of Spinach

2) 1 Banana

3) Almond Milk

It's good to go, plus anything else you want to add...

My sister, Jenny, likes to add a squirt of flaxseed oil (which you can't taste - thankfully). This morning, I made the smoothie with a little OJ (vitamin C helps you to absorb the iron in the spinach).  I know a lot of people out there like to add ground chia seeds, which I have never tried.  Chia seeds would totally elevate this drink to SUPERFOOD status.  But the taste, I wonder, is it goooood?

And then of course, the glass you choose can totally enhance the experience of drinking a green drink -- or any beverage for that matter :)  

Check out this Women's Health link for some great info on Folic Acid and how to get it.  

What do you add to your smoothies? I notice a lot of bloggers have fun names for their smoothies, do you have one?
