Green Smoothies Recipes

by Heidi on The Frugal Girls
I have always been a fan of smoothies. There’s just something so refreshing about drinking frozen blended fruit!
However, I recently started to hear people talking about “Green Smoothies”.  It didn’t sound tasty, and almost sounded downright yucky!
These very people were saying that they were actually putting spinach in their smoothies!!
Now I know veggies are essential and spinach has been called a superfood, but honestly… not in my smoothie! Curiosity got the best of me though, and I now must say I’m hooked.
When experimenting with a “recipe” I had an amazing discovery… I couldn’t taste the spinach!
So why wouldn’t I add this tremendously healthy green into my smoothie? Oh, and as long as you add some pretty colored fruit, it won’t turn out green either!

Recipe ~ Green Smoothies!
1 handful spinach
2 cups orange juice
2 cups milk
1 banana
8 – 10 strawberries (I use frozen)
1/2 cup blueberries (I use frozen)
8 oz. yogurt (I prefer boysenberry or blackberry)
1 dash of sugar
*Blend spinach, orange juice and milk together first. I use the liquify option on my blender.
*Once the spinach has blended well, add all other ingredients and blend.
*If using fresh fruit, you can add in some ice cubes for more of a frozen consistency.
This is a great way to pack some fruit & veggie servings into your day. You may also find another bonus is a little boost of energy! Optional add-ins could include ground flax, protein powder, unflavored fiber powder, etc.
Have you tried a green smoothie yet? What are some of your favorite things to add into your smoothies? Leave a comment – I’d love to hear!!

Safeway: cheap tortillas and clarification on Super Coupons- for Jill!!


 Sarah gave me the heads up about a great deal on Mission tortillas going at Safeway this week. Use the in-ad coupon to get them at the $0.99 price. AND, there is a limit of 10 on this item. Then, stack with the $0.75/1 coupon from the 1/10 SmartSource and you've got tortillas for $0.24 each! You can find the ad here.

As most of you know, these "Super Coupons" require a minimum purchase of $10 to use. Sarah found some GREAT clarification on these - right on the
Safeway website! Check it out:

"You will reach the minimum purchase amount based upon total purchases before your Club Card discount is applied. This total will include the coupon item's regular price, not the discounted price. For example, the regular retail price of a box of Cheerios (before coupon and before Club Card discounts) will count toward the minimum purchase required in order to use the Cheerios coupon.
Let's break this down. According to the Mission in-ad coupon, the price before discount (but after Club Card) would be $1.99 each. I'm not sure of the price before any discounts, but let's suppose it's $2.50. This policy tells me that I could buy 4 tortillas and qualify to use the coupon, because my total before any discount would be $10. Does that make sense?
Given this my question is: "why have a minimum purchase amount in the first place?" It seems like a way to trick customers into spending more than they need. The idea! 

Sarah tells me that she usually has to show cashiers this policy in order to have them process the coupons correctly. So I DO recommend you print this out for your Safeway trips. Thanks for pointing this out, Sarah!
