Food: Princess Fiona

December 2, 2011

Linda Wagner is a genius!  Ok yes, she is a skilled nutrition and life coach who utilizes holistic methodology to invigorate the mind body and spirit, but that’s besides the point!  LOL!  She gave a recipe for a liquid spinach smoothie that even my 9 year old daughter loves.  And get this…it promotes weight loss!

Her Glowing Green smoothie, which i have named Princess Fiona, is by far the best smoothie that i have ever had that’s actually all natural and good for you, packed with a big dose of vitamins and minerals.  Some people shy away from it because of the color but that actually pulled me in being as though this particular shade of green is my favorite color.  heehee!

This recipe is super simple. All you need is a blender and the following ingredients:

  • 1-2 bananas (1 banana instead of 2, cuts back 121 calories)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peaches
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • a couple handfuls of spinach
  • water (just enough to blend)
  • ice (if desired, but since the fruit is frozen, it’s not needed)

It’s great for weight loss, digestive health, supporting the immune system, and as a healthy and filling snack. After a couple of weeks you’ll have that ‘Glow’ – glowing skin, hair, nails, even eyes get brighter! Who doesn’t want that?!

Use other fruits if you desire, but i will warn you that darker fruits like strawberries, black berries or blueberries will turn the shake from pretty green to a shade of brown or greyish brown.  Not as appealing but tastes just as good if not better.
