And dont worry, mine are often brown monster smoothies as well! [Reply] ashley Reply: December 18th, 2011 at 6:34 PM Does it taste good? Or is something you choke down? [Reply] amy Reply: December 18th, 2011 at 6:59 PM If it didn’t taste good I wouldn’t blog it. It’s delicious! [Reply] Kathy Reply: January 12th, 2013 at 3:00 PM All you taste is fruit – DELICIOUS!! daibreak Reply: February 9th, 2012 at 1:28 AM You seriously can not even taste the spinach and if you use a ripe enough banana (I let them over-ripen and the freeze them), you won’t need honey. Also, I eliminate soy and dairy (I eat Paleo) from mine by just freezing the bananas and throwing in a few ice cubes. It’s wonderfully creamy just like that.  [Reply] Allison Reply: January 10th, 2012 at 6:59 PM I’m so excited. I LOVE smoothies and just happen to have some fresh spinach in my frig. I’m going to try this tomorrow. I put my smoothie in a large Tervis Tumbler with a lid/straw and a design on the outside, so I won’t see the color anyway! Thanks for sharing!!! [Reply] Andrea Reply: October 1st, 2012 at 11:19 AM What a great idea, Allison, about putting it into a tumbler. I was just thinking, how could I get my teenage son, who eats very few fruits and veggies, but always asks for smoothies, to drink this with the color of it? I will def. try that idea, thanks again.  [Reply] gemnilocs Reply: February 20th, 2012 at 8:29 PM i have been juicing for the past several weeks and I am going to try this as my post workout drink! looks awesome [Reply] Comment by Chrissy — July 19, 2011 @ 2:38 PM Oh, I hope Peach comes back around soon. these look so good AND good for you. love the pic in the blender! [Reply] Smoothie louv Reply: February 2nd, 2012 at 6:56 PM You can always use frozen peaches [Reply] Duh Reply: February 26th, 2012 at 12:51 PM I think Peach= baby in this case… [Reply] Comment by Kelsey — July 19, 2011 @ 7:30 PM I’ve never tried green monsters. I don’t know why…I love fruit and I’m intrigued by adding spinach!  [Reply] Comment by Amy @ The Nifty Foodie — July 19, 2011 @ 10:33 PM Sounds delicious! Green smoothies are the greatest… How far along are you? Is your bump showing yet?  [Reply] Comment by Karina — July 20, 2011 @ 3:09 AM I don’t think it looks unappetizing… in fact, if you hadn’t said anything, I would have just assumed it was chocolate! [Reply] molly Reply: December 5th, 2012 at 9:47 PM if you want chocolate, try adding a tblsp of unsweetened chocolate powder. it’s wonderfully chocolaty. be inventive, experiment. [Reply] Comment by Jenn — July 20, 2011 @ 8:11 AM I hear so much about these smoothies I am going to have to give it a try, yours does look so very very good! [Reply] Comment by Chef Dennis — July 20, 2011 @ 4:39 PM Haha, I trust you! Can’t go wrong with those ingredients, and I must say you make a brown smoothie look pretty good  This would be a great way to give my son more spinach. I don’t know why I haven’t thought to add it to a smoothie! [Reply] Comment by Brianna — July 20, 2011 @ 7:18 PM I love that photo with everything in the blender! I really want to try this soon! I hope you are feeling good lately  [Reply] Comment by Jessica — July 21, 2011 @ 10:28 PM I thought it was chocolate, too!  And ditto on the blender shot — just beautiful! P.S. What a darling name for your baby-to-be! [Reply] Comment by Kimby — July 22, 2011 @ 8:41 AM Make that: “baby-in-waiting!” She/he is already asserting their presence in this world with definite likes and dislikes! [Reply] Comment by Kimby — July 22, 2011 @ 8:42 AM Awesome smoothie! I do the same thing but add 1/2 a scoop of my Shakeology into it. YUM! [Reply] Comment by Jess — July 23, 2011 @ 4:56 PM Despite what it looks like, which those ingredients is has to be delicious. Thanks so much for sharing. [Reply] Comment by Eliana — July 28, 2011 @ 5:32 AM I make these, too! Instead of honey, I add a handful of almonds, walnuts, whey protein, and milled flax seed. And I’ve recently tried adding carrots ~ can’t taste them.  Have a wonderful day ~ Alexandra [Reply] Comment by Alexandra — July 28, 2011 @ 8:19 AM I am afraid I would have to pretend it was chocolate. Thinking about the spinach that is in it would have me stopped dead in my tracks! No wonder your little peach doesn’t like it! She is starting her no like list early! [Reply] Comment by Jean — July 28, 2011 @ 1:43 PM I have just started making these! I make them at night, put them in the freezer, and take them to work with me. I let it sit on my desk from about 6 am until around 8 or 9 and they are perfect to start sippin on. Mine are made from banana, Almond Silk Chocolate Soy Milk, 1 tbs peanut butter and 2 hand fulls of spinach. I am thinking of trying one this weekend with mango, coconut soy milk, banana, cucumber and spinach, (been kinda scared of messing with the ingrediants but may try to be brave lol) [Reply] Comment by Dyanna — August 3, 2011 @ 7:59 AM I LOVE this! My 5 year old thought it was a milkshake and wanted to try it too, he LOVED it!My family already eats a wide array of fruits and vegetables, but I never considered blending them together! These smoothies will be terrific for the kids breakfast when school starts! They will also be a wonderful addition to my autistic son’s diet. [Reply] Comment by Michele — August 5, 2011 @ 1:34 PM Hmmm, I thought it was a choco drink at first… But, fruity looks good to. I have everything but spinach, but I have lettuce, and I ran out of yogurt. BUT, I have some frozen blueberry yogurt I made, and maybe I can use that in my version. Mmmm good idea! [Reply] Comment by Lannae — August 6, 2011 @ 2:46 PM Just made something very similar. Mine came out purple from the blueberries. All my fruit was frozen, so I used only 2 ice cubes and the rest water to get the blender going. Very tasty frozen treat! [Reply] Comment by Lannae — August 6, 2011 @ 3:07 PM Our green smoothies often turn out brown. You were very brave to photograph yours!  We alternate between green smoothies made w/lettuce, spinach and/or kale and cottage cheese/flax oil smoothies. I love both kinds, and both are so good for you! [Reply] Comment by Jenni — August 7, 2011 @ 4:52 PM I have been looking for a great smoothie recipe to incorporate fruits and veggies.

Amazing how you won’t even taste the spinach. You can also use kale! Also, when your bananas get ripe, w/brown spots on them, peel, put in freezer bag and freeze. They’ll keep for up to 6 wk. You wouldn’t have to use as much ice. Makes me want to go get the ingredients now!

So much easier to blend…I actually freeze all my ingredients in single serving baggies for mornings I on the run! [Reply] Nicole Reply: February 9th, 2012 at 11:02 PM I have been wondering if you could freeze the spinach and make individual size smoothie “mix” ahead of time.

And the comments too. “Did you have to choke it down?” LOL. I can’t wait to try this one. I’ve been making healthy smoothies for years and sometimes they’re good and other times…well, let’s just say that after a few sips, I knew I was going to have to dump the whole thing. I used to make a liver detox juice with ginger, lemon, olive oil and lemons. My sister would say to me, “How on earth can you drink that stuff? Why don’t you just put it on a salad instead?” LOL.
