For people who are having problem with texture. Try cutting off the stems of the BABY spinach, chopping the carrots into smaller peices and blend them first for a few minutes then add the fruit. You can add or subtract fruits also. I love adding pineapple juice or grapejuice to mine. And my mom adds bluberries and other berries to hers.

I like it better with the spinach and carrots juiced first, and then added to the fruit. If you don't want to juice them, or don't have a juicer - try freezing them before putting them in the blender. It helps them break up more and turns out less.... chunky.

A Vitamix or other strong blender makes these green smoothies great tasting with no chunks. You need to experiment to get the right balance of sweetness. I like to add ground flaxseed/hempseed for extra protein.

I'm an adult that loves fruits and vegetables and I cannot imagine trying to feed this to a kid. It tasted like I was chewing/drinking straight spinach. Won't make this again.

I cut this recipe down to one serving and measured the ingredients very carefully. I blended the spinach and carrots in the juice first to make sure I didn't have unground bits of veggies in my drink. Then I added the rest of the ingredients. I ended up with a thick smoothie that had a predominant banana flavor and was orange in color. Not bad for my breakfast this morning, but the name didn't fit it:)

Not sure why people are having problems with texture. I used a regular blender and did batches to ensure a smooth smoothie. I did do the carrots and juice first until mostly smooth, then spinach, blend, apples, blend, bananas, blend, strawberries and ice, finally blend. Tasted pretty good and up the rating to 5 stars since it has 2 types of veggies. Will make again.

I really liked this smoothie! I made 1 serving and found I had to add about 1/4 cup of water due it being too thick. What a nice way to get your vegetables!
