The freshest, fastest way to get your veggies is in a smoothie. Spinach is the ideal choice for a green smoothie thanks to its neutral taste and ability to blend up without leaving little chunks in your drink. Since spinach is rich in vitamins and antioxidants, it’s almost a shame not to toss a handful into every smoothie you make. Two tablespoons of flaxseed in this bright green drink will give you omega-3s plus lignans for cardiovascular health.
