Berry Spinach Smoothie

      This is a fabulous beginning smoothie, because you cannot taste the spinach AND you cannot see the spinach. This smoothie looks exactly like what it tastes like....berries (with a hint of banana.) This is the perfect 'green' smoothie to sneek nutrition into your afraid-of-green-smoothie kids or significant other. Unless someone watches you put spinach in this smoothie, no one will ever guess this fruity drink has anything green in it.

        You can feel good about giving your family this wonderful, cold, fruity concoction anytime of day. It tastes like ice cream, but makes your body function as if eating a salad. What's not to love?

Berry Spinach Smoothie
1 serving

1/2 cup apple juice
1 banana
2+ cups baby spinach
3/4 - 1 cup frozen berry blend

Place all ingredients, starting with 1 cup spinach, in a blender and blend until smooth. Taste. Add more spinach to taste. Keep increasing the amount of spinach as you get more used to the taste and texture. Enjoy.
