    You can easily add spinach to this smoothy if you have greenaphobic kiddos like I do. My children NEVER know it’s in there…the bluberries hide it just right.

    I make this all the time, except I freeze the yogurt ahead of time (sometimes the fruit too) and use apple juice & honey to sweeten. Very yummy! I’ll have to try the flaxseed sometime.

    That looks absolutely wonderful! I have just started making green smoothies. The hubs say they taste good but he can’t get past the color to drink one. Tracay, I am going to take your advice and try and sneak some green into this purple beauty! :)
