Spinach + Spice

I've been experimenting with this recipe for a few days and I finally got it down. It's the perfect blend of sweet, tart, fresh and spice. The recipe is fairly simple with ingredients you may already have. I've been making this in the mornings to try and replace breakfast and also get that kick of energy I need.

This can also quickly be transformed into just the right cocktail to kick off spring or a day in the sun. ALSO great for parties and events, this recipe is super easy to make a lot of with your blender or if you get hands on a margarita machine!

To make 2 (or one very very large) YOU'LL NEED :

3 cups ice
1 sliced banana
Handful of spinach or about 18 leaves (remove stems)
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (I use chobani or trader joes brand, but any will do)
1 cup orange juice
1/3 cup spiced apple cider
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
and if it's sunday fun day : add 4 oz of rum (I recommend the Kraken Black Spiced Rum to play with the cinnamon)

Blend all together, pour, garnish with cinnamon and a spinach leaf (if your feeling creative) and enjoy!
