Strawberry and banana lend great taste to this healthy smoothie, and spinach adds extra vitamins. Quite delicious.
Delish!!! I followed this recipe to the T, the first few times I made it and the smoothies tasted great! I definitely don't taste the spinach. My only problem was I had to fight w/ my blender just to to get it to blend everything together. I could eventually get it done, but it just took forever. My sister finally told me that my problem was that I didn't have any liquid to help the blender process the ingredients. So I've started adding 3/4 cups of pineapple juice to the recipe and voila! No more fighting with my blender and the pineapple juice makes the smoothie even tastier! Thanks for a great recipe, Janet. - 30 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I wrote this recipe. I got the idea from all the raw food blogswhen trying to cure my asthma. Spinach blends easier when frozen that is why I reccommended that. I have a vitamix so I don't have to add liquid. I do love this smoothie with pineapple juice as a few people have figured out. I wouldn't say you need to measure anything just try variations and find what you love. These are so healthy it feels good to drink them. I never thought of adding yogurt or milk, but I'm glad people like it that way too. For me the greener the better. Plus my husband and son were both forced at first to try them and now they love them. Thanks everyone. - 19 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are a great, quick and easy green smoothie. I don't add any ice as long as the strawberries are frozen. I don't always add a banana either, but a little orange juice is great in there. - 28 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
