our favorite green smoothie {peach banana spinach smoothie}

i remember when i used to see people drinking green smoothies or juices and the thought of “drinking” a vegetable sounded horrible to me.  trust me, i have come a long way….yesterday, i drank a huge glass of cabbage apple juice (that would have never happened a few years ago). ever since we invested in a vita-mix and an omega juicer,  both green juices and smoothies have become a staple in our household. i don’t follow specific recipes necessarily and a lot of times i am kinda “cleaning out the fridge”, but i thought i would share a recipe for one of our favorites.  this peach banana spinach smoothie is great for people that are just starting out with green smoothies, since it does have a lot of fruit in it to cover the spinach.

this picture of the full vita-mixwas when i was making a batch for 4 people….that is about half of the amount of spinach i typically use, but i had to blend it down before adding more. we also have the ease of using our canned peaches.  every year we can a ton of jars of peaches with my husband’s family, which is wonderful since i always have them on hand.
