Green Smoothie 2

green smoothie 2 | pale yellow (almond milk, spinach, pineapple, strawberry, and flax)Almost everyday for lunch I drink this smoothie along with leftovers or a quinoa salad.  It should be no surprise I eat a lot of quinoa salads.  What I like about the smoothie is the ingredients are relatively cheap and the magic bullet is able to make a smooth smoothie.  Losing access to a VitaMix is tough, but I’m surviving and improvising.
