I like to make this with frozen banana because it makes the whole thing have a very creamy texture, but sometimes, unless you have a powerful blender like the vita-mix it is hard to blend up a lot of frozen fruit and so fresh bananas work just as well. Using frozen berries as well as a frozen banana I always have to add some water to the mix to get it to blend well, so do the same if need be.
makes 1 large serving
4 cups baby spinach leaves, loosely packed
2 cups frozen mixed berries or just blueberries works fine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (you can add 2 teaspoons if you really love it)
a little water to help with blending, if necessary
Blend everything into submission, drink, and surprise yourself with how good it is.
