    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    2 cup

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel and slice fruit.
    2. 2
      Blend in blender until reasonably smooth.
    3. 3
      If you find the granny smith and spinach are too tart add some maple syrup or sweetener to taste.
    4. 4
      A Golden Delicious apple can be substituted for the Granny Smith. (I prefer to use a Golden, myself).
    5. 5
      I used spinach (can be fresh or frozen) but arugula or kale would also work. The amount is approximate.

      Wow! This was great! I did not even add the banana! Orange, apple, spinach and water with a tablespoon of lemon juice to brighten it all. Added 1 packet of stevia (truvia). Tasty and yummy! Thanks!@

      Awesome! very tasty! I used golden delicious apples instead of the granny. (too sour) and since I had no oranges, I used 2 scoops of orange juice concentrate. very filling. Plus, you can't taste the spinach at all! I do like the flavor of cooked spinach, but not raw. I've been freezing all the ingredients in a plastic bag, then letting it thaw a bit, and then blending it up for a fast lunch! (you know how peoples schedules are this days) Thanks for posting!!

      Great recipe. And convenient for me because they are ingredients I buy every single week. I only put 3 ounces of spinach in though, because 8 ounces would have been my whole bag!
