Is it possible to be addicted to Green Smoothies?

When my daughter told me last week that she was making
and drinking green smoothies,
I'll admit that I thought she was crazy.
I mean the thought of drinking
green leafy vegetables and fruit
was the last thing on my list of yummy treats.
But after hearing about how she had tons of energy
after drinking green smoothies
I figured I'd give it a whirl.
Guess what?
I'm addicted!!!
Here's my recipe,
hope you like it!

Green Smoothie

1 cup So Delicious Organic Unsweetened Coconut Milk beverage
1 cup organic baby spinach
1 cup organic frozen peaches
1/2 small organic banana (cut into chunks)
1/2 dropper Vanilla Cream Stevia liguid

Place spinach leaves in your blender first and then add remaining ingredients. Blend on high speed until thick and creamy and spinach is pretty much pulverized. In my Ninja this only takes a minute or so. Pour into a glass and enjoy! The cool part, for me anyways, is that this mixture stays creamy and doesn't seperate so I don't feel like I have to race to finish it. It tastes like a yummy peach and banana smoothie. You don't really taste the spinach at all. There's just a bright freshness to it. I'm totally addicted. You could switch out the fruits and or try kale instead of spinach to suit your taste.
