This is my favorite smoothie of all time. Believe it or not I use fresh baby spinach leaves. It practically adds no calories but does add great health benefits. I promise you will NOT taste the spinach! I couldn’t believe it the first time I tried it. This smoothie is a great pick me up any time of day and is so sweet and delish without any added sugar. Enjoy!
