"Easy and simple, you'll have this smoothie in no time. This smoothie is packed with nutrients and vitamins. It's also perfect if you're in a hurry to get to work, rushing your kids to school (rushing yourself to school...like me), or just craving a fresh and healthy drink to start your day. Organic maple syrup can be added instead of honey." — *Cozycook*

baby spinach leaves, or to taste
carrot, peeled and cut into large chunks
plain fat-free Greek yogurt, or to taste
Love this recipe. You cannot taste the spinach or carrots. When making for kids, I put in frozen cherries to make it red.
This was our first spinach smoothie experience! I have always been meaning to try it. This was a great combination of fruits and vegetables and healthy too. My husband and I both enjoyed it!
This is so delicious and my 2 and 5 year old love it...of course, I didn't tell them what was in it! I did substitute vanilla yogurt because that is what I had on hand.
I would rate this between a 3-4. My rating is higher, because it does have vegetables added to it which to me is just healthier for a meal smoothie. I don't know what I did wrong, because mine was not the pretty green color. It was the color of sand. Only change I made was making a half of a recipe, to reduce the calories. It made plenty for one person. The banana I used was also frozen. I don't typically add that much yogurt or even need sweeteners in a smoothie. Going to work with the base here, to see what I can come up with. I do not taste any fruit or even the vegetables, really, mostly just taste like liquified yogurt.
I love this recipe. I kept thinking that it was going to taste so green. But you really don't taste the carrot or spinach. Its really good and fulling. Plus its actually fun to make. Its one of my first times trying a green and healthy smoothie.
