Smoothies for every mood

Here are two off my smoothies.
I have a green smoothie most mornings. Someone mentioned they can't stand green food. To me green is life it's the leaves outside and the trees etc. I make a huge smoothie and then I eat it slowly with the smallest and longest teaspoon I can find.
My green smoothie
I put in a bunch of greens (spinach, leaves from all sorts of veg, cilantro, parsley, lemon verbana whatever I have in my CSA box). I add my fruit which changes depending on CSA box and what I have in. My favorites are pineapple, apple, frozen banana, guava ok just about any fruit.
I add 1/2 cup of almond milk or juice, 1/2 cup of water, 2 ice cubes, 1 tbs of chia seeds and occasionally 1 tbs of nut butter.
I usually blend it and once it's done I put a tbs of dried cranberries/goji berries and 1 tsp cocoa nibs or 1 tbs desiccated unsweetened coconut. This keeps me full till lunch.
Sometimes I prefer purple smoothies so I use frozen berries instead of other fruit and it looks like this
