spinach smoothie

after reading michelle's post about getting on a health kick & my recent eating right goals, i wanted to give the spinach smoothie a try. so for the last few days, i have been making one every morning. (jude has even started sharing mine with me) every time i make it, i do it a little different. still using the basic ingredients, i just switch a couple of things in or out.

smoothie #1
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1 cup ice
1/2 of a banana
1/2 of a peach
1/2 of a mango
a decent size handful of spinach
1 large kale leaf

smoothie #2
3/4 cup pineapple juice (with a few pineapple chunks tossed in)
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1 cup of ice
1/2 of a banana
1 whole nectarine
a few cranberries thrown in
a generous handful of spinach
1 large kale leaf
both smoothies were absolutely delicious! i know the thought of a spinach smoothie may seem weird, but i promise you, it doesn't taste it. you hardly even notice how healthy it is for you! 

if you plan on making them at home, keep in mind that there is no right way to do it (unless you are following a certain diet plan) if your like me, and just want a healthy start to every morning, experiment with whatever you've got in your fridge. 

happy smoothie making!
