Citrus Spinach Smoothie

Spinach Citrus Smoothies, dark chocolate garnish

Today was a beautiful March day.  76 degrees and a bright blue sky.  After a nice bike ride we found ourselves looking to cool off so what could be better than smoothies?

For me there is no single ingredient more flexible than spinach. I use it in bread, lasagna, pizza and yes, smoothies.  In these smoothies the spinach provides a nice balance to the citrus.  


Smoothie Ingredients
* Two big handfuls of spinach
* A couple of oranges ( peeled of course )
* A cup or so of apple juice
* A cup and a half of frozen mango
* A cup of frozen pinapple


This is pretty straight forward.  Jamb it all in the blender and let it rip.  If the blender is getting plugged up add a bit more apple juice and stir in with a long flexible spoon.

Ready to blend
