Green Juice

I'm more focused than ever to get all my nutrients with my baby coming soon.  Especially after reading that fetal brain development is the most crucial at the end of pregnancy.  So, I saw on the Today Show this morning that Joy Bauer had a recipe for a green juice.  I've never mad a green smoothie before, and wasn't sure if I'd like it.  Well, I copied her recipe, and I must say, it isn't all that bad.  It's soooooooo good for you, and it has the added protein from the greek yogurt.  I guess if you're going to try a green smoothie, might as well try this one.

Bottoms up!


1 large handful of baby spinach
1/2 Cup chopped cucumber, with skin on
1 celery stalk, peeled and chopped
1/2 Cup water (I used a cup of ice instead so it would be nice and cold)
1 small container of plain, nonfat greek yogurt (about 1 cup)
1/2 a banana
1/2 Cup rinsed and drained canned (or fresh) pineapple

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
