I usually put the spinach in first then weigh it down with the heavier ingredients like frozen berries and such. There usually are still tiny specks of green and red, but I bet if I had more patience and let it blend longer it'd all smooth out.

Something that helped me was to wilt my spinach in the microwave before blending. It softens and steams itself slightly and then comes apart much more easily.

I use Juice Plus. It taste good and was able to help me lose weight. I ordered mine from this guy.

On other days, I would juice on my own. I love the taste of cucumber, apple, and oranges together. Its refreshing.

Oh. I didnt even think of freezing it. I will freeze it tonite and see if it helps any tomorrow. Thanks for the tip. My ninja came with the single serve containers so i will try that too.

I just ordered a Ninja Kitchen pulse system, so I'm hoping it will work well on my smoothies. If the blender you have comes with a single serve cup, you should use it as that will work better. I'm still using my old (like 40 year old) blender for smoothies until my Ninja comes in. But, I read the other day to freeze the fresh kale and use the frozen kale in the smoothies so that it purees better and tastes better.

I froze the kale and no more little bits in my smoothie.

Some blenders don't do that marvelous a job of pureeing to a paste. My Processor does a mediocre job, but my wizz stick (stick blender) does a fantastic job, and a better job than my previous wizz stick.

I love smoothies.. Healthy ones and especially ones that incorporate veggies like kale, spinach or celery. I don't get enough greens and love adding them to the smoothies. However, when I blend them I still see tiny pieces in there. Does anyone know how to get it to fully blend? I just got a professional ninja lender which is just like a vitamix and I blended it for at least a minute or longer but still had tiny pieces.
