Greenberry Smoothie

Greenberry Smoothie - Wait - where's the green?
Note: 

In the neverending effort to incorporate more greens in my diet, I've been adding greens to my morning smoothies, and it's fantastic!  This is my favorite version so far:  the spinach has a pretty undetectable flavor and the berries make it purple, so kiddos and health-phobes won't know the difference.  Enjoy the green deliciousness, and email me if you have any taste-tantalizing tweaks or tips!

Tools needed: 
blender
Time: 
10 minutes
Ingredients: 
1 banana, peeled, chopped into pieces
2 oranges, peeled, deseeded and quarters
1 1/2 cups total, any combination of frozen blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, chopped strawberries (I choose 3, 1/2 cup of each)
1/2 - 1 cup almond milk (or preferred milk, may have to adjust amount to desired consistency)
2 cups fresh spinach leaves, rinsed (or favorite greens like parsley or arugula)
Directions: 
  1. Put all ingredients into blender, and blend with lid on until everything is mixed thoroughly and your desired consistency.  You may need to add milk to thin it, or more frozen fruit to thicken it.
  2. Pour into a fun glass and serve or consume immediately.

Tips: Use spinach if you "don't want to know" or throw in some parsley, arugula, or cilantro to really add some zing and "green" flavor to your smoothie.

Serves:
