    I just wanted to ask, can you taste the green of the spinach? This looks great! Thanks for posting it! =)

      I can’t taste the spinach at all… although I have been drinking green smoothies for a long time. I can promise you it doesn’t taste like drinking a spinach salad though!
      Please try it, and post how you thought it tasted! :)
