This has been my go-to smoothie lately!  I’ve think I’ve had it a few times a week recently.  I love a green smoothie when I’m in a rush, or when I’m a little low energy.  It’s pretty flexible and awesome.

I have to say, though, that when it comes to green smoothies, I love the ones that are secretly green.  This means while it packs a decent serving of leafy greens, it tastes sweet rather than savory.  Often that requires a banana as they’re super sweet, but this one is awesome as apple (and a little stevia) help make it fruity.

When I say “green apple” I do intend to mean green like the colour (for the purpose of trying to trick kids into veggies, and green like the spinach.  Double meaning green times.
