GO! Green Smoothie   
GO! Green Smoothie
We can’t say enough good things about this smoothie. Packed with fruit, veggies and yogurt, it’s a one-container wonder. You get carbohydrates for energy from the fruit, and you get protein from the yogurt. Together, they’ll keep you feeling full. Then, the spinach takes everything up a notch, offering vitamins A (for healthy vision) and K (for normal blood clotting) and folate (for heart health). Oh, and the banana provides potassium! We told you this smoothie is a wonder.

I tried this recipe this morning. It was really, really good. In this recipe you cannot taste the spinach or kale which I guess is the idea. It's like drinking thick fruit juice.
