Drinking smoothies like it's summer

I love a smoothie for lunch on a summer afternoon. It's not quite summer here yet, but I'm drinking them this week anyway. (My motivation was that e had some spinach in the fridge that I knew was going to go bad.) I'm typing this and sipping at the same time...mmmmmmm...

Here are my highly-technical ingredients:

♥ A couple spoonfuls of plain (non-sweetened) yogurt
♥ About 1/2 can of coconut milk
♥ About a cup of fresh spinach
♥ A large drizzle of maple syrup
♥ Three frozen bananas

Blend the first four until the spinach is all blended, then add the bananas. I like to add a nice little dollop of coconut milk on top to make it pretty. I'm all about pretty food.

I started to read your list of required ingredients and I thought "wow, that sounds good." Until, my eyes scanned across the spinach part!!

Sounds very interesting, anyhow!

Truthfully, it doesn't have any sort of vegetable flavor...all you can taste is the fruity, coconutty flavor, but you get some extra vegetables as a bonus. :-)
