Blueberry Greens Smoothie

What you need: 

2 cups water
1 cup spinach
1 1/2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon EFA oil
2 tablespoons agave nectar

What you do: 

1. Put all ingredients into blender.
2. Blend it for about 1 minute or until the spinach is totally obliterated.
If you didn't use frozen fruit this smoothie will not be as thick. You can always add some ice to it if you like it chilled.
My 4 year old son loves this smoothie. It's an easy way to get raw greens into his diet. You do not taste the greens so don't be put off by the combo! Drinking this smoothie makes me feel great. I love it in the morning or even for dinner.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Wow, this was a really great smoothie, probably my favorite that I've ever made. I used rice milk instead of water, and it really turned out fabulous. Will make more often. :)

This is delicious! Instead of water, I added vanilla almond milk to add a little more flavor and body to the smoothie. I will make this again  :)

I used milled flax seeds and honey and only 1/2c of spinach and this turned out great.  I recommend cutting up th banana THEN freezing it. DoNOT freeze in the peel. Its so hard to get out!  Very good.  Worth a try and truely not expensive.  Also I think mixed frozen berries would work well too.

This was pretty good, but I didn't have any bananas so it turned out too liquidy. Definitely will use bananas next time. Also - I used collard greens, if you do this, remember to cut out the stems, cuz they didn't blend well. Oh, I couldn't finish this either - it's definitely two servings, not one, so I'd divide it in half next time. Still yummy tho!!

i just made this and it's great! i used collard greens because my grocery store had wimpy little bunches of both kale and spinach, and i've never had collard greens before..so i figured i'd try them! i also used ground flax seed instead of oil. next time i might use less water because mine turned out a little soupy and runny, not thick like i usually like smoothies.
this is my first "green" smoothie, so i was a little apprehensive, but this recipe seemed really great. you definitely DO NOT taste the greens! all i taste is blueberry and banana. it's wonderful...i can't wait to make more and experiment!  :)

I love green smoothies, and I have made them with spinach, kale, chard, etc.  I use frozen fruit (bananas, blueberries, strawberries, etc) and I use juice and/or soy milk).  I also add ground flax seed.  But here's my quandary.....I often referance a juicing site, and they say to NEVER juice fruit and vegetable together..NEVER.  So I am conflicted.  Is this a good idea to add the greens, or not?  I know blending and juicing are not the same, but yet they end up going down together.  Any expert advice on this?

I often mod this recipe, depending on what's in my fridge & freezer.
It's a really good basic smoothie recipe, yums!

I've been making this all week, it's tasty and healthy-- I also left the oil and agave out.  Refreshing!

I love this.  I used soy milk instead of water, collard greens instead of spinach, cut out the agave and oil.  I drank half of it and froze the rest.  I let it thaw out a little this morning and now I'm eating it like ice cream.
