Shock discovery: a green smoothie that tastes good

This is not a normal green smoothie: it is actually quite nice. Yes it has spinach, but the apple and banana somehow work with it to give a balanced, not-too-sweet flavour. Surprisingly, it makes a decent breakfast if you want something healthy and filling to start your day.

I normally don’t like smoothies; but I do like this one. It’s worth a go if you haven’t ventured into green smoothies before.

Who would have thought you could drink spinach? A surprisingly nice green smoothie.
