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.
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.
