Frozen Spinach Pops [for Smoothies & Protein Shakes] (video)
We all know that dark leafy greens are the #1 ingredient missing from American diets so I am always looking for a new way to work them into my daily routine (which brings me to these clever little spinach pops!).
I have to send out a big cyber-thank you to Brittany from LittleB’sHealthyHabits, it’s because of her that I can now effortlessly add some greens to my protein shakes and smoothies any day of the week.
Brittany’s site is all about eating clean & fitness, her focus and determination are extremely inspirational. Definitely check her out for some clean eating inspiration and fitness motivation.
I haven’t tried yet, but I bet you could also add one of these to your morning bowl of oats to make something like this with a little less effort.
