Spinach Smoothie

I have a confession.  I have never had a smoothie with spinach till today.  I am not sure why I have never tried it, maybe I just didn't have any at the time I was making smoothies?  But today I was in the fridge pulling out fruit and yogurt ingredients for my smoothie and saw the spinach.  So I decided to give it a whirl!  I was surprised, you don't even taste the spinach in there!  It was so yummy too!
I make smoothies all the time, and you know me, I just throw in what I have around.  

Today's smoothie recipe
  • half a mango
  • handful of blue berries
  • big handful of baby spinach
  • half cup yogurt
  • half a banana
  • about 6 ice cubes
Throw all in a blender, and whirl till smooth!  Enjoy!

It's amazing that you really, truly cannot taste the spinach, isn't it? It's my favorite way to eat spinach now:-)

We always add spinach to our smoothies - it's all the benefits without the taste! Even my husband (the picky one) will drink it without comment.

Makes for some weird colors, but still delish!! :) I ♥ smoothies, and I really ♥ your blog, too.

I've never tried spinach in a smoothie. And I have no idea why either. I love to trick the kids and they would never taste it with berries and a banana.

Perfect! I throw in some flax and unsweetened coconut sometimes. Yum :)

I'm making spaghetti tonight and I usually add about 8 oz of chopped spinach into the sauce. Spinach is so versatile!
