I'm big on the smoothies... never realized the spinach wouldn't add a "green" flavour to it.

I'll have to try!

Thanks Mr. Joseph!

There's nothing to it, and it is as good as ice cream to me. I like it better without the flax seed, but if you need to get in your omegas, there's one way to do it.

If you poke around the food sites a bit, you will see that green smoothies are become more popular. These are healthful smoothies that include vegetables, typically leafy greens like spinach, or even broccoli. You can even include a cup or two of fresh spinach in a smoothie without being able to tell it is there! If you have family members that have trouble with vegetables, here is a great way to get them in.

One recipe (it comes out purple and tasting great):

1 individual container of yogurt (I use berry-flavored soy yogurt)
1 cup of unsweetened soy milk (sweetened is okay, too; I just buy the unsweetened)
1 cup of frozen or fresh blueberries (or a berry mix)
2 cups packed fresh spinach
optional: 2 tablespoons freshly ground flax seed

Blend the ingredients until smooth and thick. This makes about 20 ounces of smoothie with a total calorie content of about 330 kcal (without flax).
