JAQUA Recipe of the Month

Did you know our Best Selling Pink Champagne Fragrance has middle notes of Fresh Crisp Granny Smith Apples? 
So in Celebration of our Best Selling Pink Champagne Fragrance we decided to feature yummy Green Apples for our November recipe of the month. Below is a scrumptious and super good for you green apple and spinach smoothie recipe. Don't worry if you aren't a spinach fan, the apple takes away that taste and just leave the yummy nutritional value. If you want it a little sweeter try vanilla yogurt, vanilla coconut milk, or just add a little sugar.

Green Apple + Spinach Smoothie

Thank you to A Beautiful Mess for the recipe.
Have you tried green smoothies? They are healthy and refreshing. The great thing about green smoothies is that you can add a lot of green to your diet without eating salad. I love salads, but sometimes variety is good! I've also known a lot of people who don't like salad who love green smoothies! They're a treat!
Needed: 1 lime, coconut milk,1 granny smith apple, baby spinach, yogurt, ice cubes. Optional: mint leaves.
Directions: For the green layer mix 2 cups spinach (2 giant handfuls works), 1/2 cup coconut milk, 4 ice cubes, 1/2 a granny smith apple (chopped) and the juice of 1 lime. Blend together and add to cup. Rinse your blender and then combine 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup yogurt (green yogurt or vanilla yogurt work great), 1/2 a granny smith apple (chopped) and 2-5 fresh mint leaves if you like mint! Blend, add to your glass and garnish with an apple slice.
Note: This smoothie is refreshing and a little tart. If you like your smoothies extra sweet, try adding a little sugar to each layer before blending. Spinach is the easiest green to blend in a sweeter smoothie, but if you don't mind the "green" taste try baby kale next time!
