Creamy Green Smoothie

Who doesn't love a yummy tasting smoothie? But when that smoothie satisfies your craving while ALSO packing in the healthy goodness, we can be doubly excited.

That's why we love this green monster of a smoothie so much we wanted to share it with you. It's called the Creamy Green Smoothie with two of our favorite “green” veggies-- spinach and avocado.

It's important to try to have some banana slices on hand in your freezer to add that chunky, cold characteristic – although you can certainly use any banana lying around. And we like using Greek yogurt for this particular blend.

It's also key to get the spinach blended first. Combine water and spinach in the blender and pulse several times just until spinach has been incorporated. Place remaining ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. We love throwing a metal straw in there to allow us to enjoy it slowly, lest we drink it in just a few slurps it's so good!

1 cup water
2 cups spinach
