Another summer day, another stove-free recipe. While I’m sure a fried egg with bacon and toast would make an equally delicious breakfast, it is just too hot for that. Also? I’m lazy.
…Yeah, if I’m being honest, that’s probably the primary reason for the recent resurgence of my blender.

I also had some baby spinach that I was trying to use up, so I tossed that in too. My fruity green smoothie was born.
The nutrients in this recipe are off the charts: it’s super high in calcium and potassium, as well as vitamins A, C, and B12. Plus it’s very low in saturated fat, with no cholesterol — something that definitely couldn’t be said for that fried egg and bacon!
