A genius way to eat (well, drink!) your greens! I used a little less spinach, left out the honey, and added a tablespoon of flax seed. Nom. For us, the cayenne gave the smoothie just the slightest suggestion of warmth and didn't make it spicy at all, *but* do note that we eat a lot of spicy stuff, so maybe our taste buds have gone numb. ;-) Great recipe, thank you Jen!

Yummy! I used Cashew Milk (Raw Foods) and frozen fruit and fresh spinach. I tasted it before adding the honey and I thought it was good that way. But because I knew I was going to skip the cayenne, I thought I'd try to be a little bit more obedient to the recipe and added the honey. It was good that way too, but you can definitely taste the honey flavor. I just knew I couldn't do cayenne on an empty stomach for breakfast! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC.

Perfect! i make this just about every day. i use soy milk and leave out the cayenne. i've made it with the pepper before. It tastes good, but a bit too spicy for my taste. Just too much for first thing in the morning for me. i use free-free's advice and do the fresh spinach thing. Thanks for introducing me to my favorite breakfast!

I left out the cayenne, and cut the spinach amount in half. Very good, and the spinach flavor was subtle this way. Pretty tasty for such a simple combo. Would make again.

...well call me crazy but I think that this rates up there among best things I have ever tasted...I have been enjoying green based smoothies (greenies) daily for several months now...but this was the first time I ever used "milk" (i use either rice or almond) &/or honey with my mix...I have made this cocktail a half dozen times now ( and don't plan on stopping)...trying the little frozen package as stated and also using fresh bagged spinach that I tossed in the freezer overnite...I like the latter method better (for me) cause I am more used to buying and dealing with that type, it is bit easier on my blender and I also get more green in my drink - but either way ='s DELISH...the cayenne is genius!!!!! (oh yeah, that was new to me too!!!) LOVED IT ...THANKS ~Jen~ :) btw as green is my favorite color I don't find it "ugly" at all...DELIGHTFUL!!!

This smoothie was really good I just think I messed up the portions to make the smoothie look green for the picture, there was a big undertone of spinach taste. :P Definitely a great way to get your spinach in. Made for the V*gan Recipe Swap Sept '08.
