I used 2 cups of baby spinach I had frozen as well as golden flax seeds instead of the chia. I couldn't taste the spinach or the kale...mostly peanut butter and banana. I did add 2 packets of Truvia as a personal preference for more sweetness. It made a breakfast that I felt was nutritious and healthy and it was a beautiful shade of green and tasted good! Read More

Great idea to get some green leafy veggies in you but I think it needs a little something else. I didn't change anything for the first try but I'll experiment a little more next time Read More

First off I drink "green" smoothies all the time - im a bit of a nutribullet addict. No sweeteners tons of greens good clean eating. Its a taste I've come to know and love. I used 2 packed cups of baby kale/spinach/chard mix that I had on hand. Also I added flax & chia. And I swapped out the regular PB for powdered PB all the taste and only 45 cal 1.5 g fat in 2 T. It was creamy and delicious but I think the chard added some unnecessary bite to it. Read More

This was delicious. I didn't have almond milk so I just used skim milk. And I added several ice cubes because I enjoy a more frozen smoothie. I gave it to my picky 8 year old and he LOVED it!! Definitely a keeper and a great way to get some healthy greens. Read More
