Cook's Notes:

I adapted a traditional spinach-and-banana green smoothie to contain more super-healthy ingredients; you really can't taste the spinach, kale, or flaxseed in this smoothie! If you don't like or don't have kale, you can just use two cups of spinach (although you really can't taste the kale). Likewise, the flax seed is optional if you don't have it. You can also use ice water instead of green tea if desired; I just use green tea for the added antioxidant benefits.

Greek yogurt can be substituted for traditional if desired.

This smoothie sure isn't pleasant to the eye but it is yummy in the tummy! I used all spinach because I did not have kale and both my banana and blueberries were frozen. I like my smoothies on the sweet side and normally have to add a packet of Truvia. This one did not need it since it was sweet enough on its own. Delicious smoothie. Read More
