Yum! We used apple juice, 2 room temp bananas, frozen bagged spinach, and a kid strawberry yogurt. My 3 girls are all loving it! Even my sweet-toothed picky 5 year old said, "mommy, this is awesome!" and they are all headed to the kitchen for 2nds!

Good recipe! I would cut the juice down to 1 cup, but I like thick smoothies so to each their own.

I added a handful of frozen cherries to my smoothie. It was very good, and like everyone has said, you can't even taste the spinach!

Perfect way to get your greens!
I used a regular banana (not frozen) because it's all I had at the time. I also only used 1 cup of orange juice (cut calories/sugar/portion).
It pretty much just tastes like orange juice... perfect for kids. :)

Really enjoyable. My kids didn't even realize it had spinach in it! They did think that the OJ pineapple juice was too strongly flavored, so next time I will try apple juice or white grape juice. I did cut the juice down to one cup and added some ice cubes. Some other time, I'm also going to try soy milk and increase the yogurt .... probably not at the same time!

Very tasty. Modified slightly for what I had on hand. Apple cider for my juice and cottage chese instead of yogurt (love the texture it gives smoothies). Tossed in some blueberries also. I agree with some other posters, if you like thick smoothies, decrease the juice to 1 cup, I ended up blending a few ice cubes in mine to thicken it up. This makes enough for 2 smoothies easily. Great taste and so healthy! Thanks for posting.

I really like it. My new year's resolution is to drink a smoothie everyday for breakfast with two heads of something green in it. I used Greek 2% yogurt. My banana wasn't frozen, but I'll try that when the weather gets warmer. Its hard for me to eat colder things in the winter. I used oj once and unsweetened vanilla almond milk once. I like it both ways.
