Spinach = Delicious!!

So I thought I would post my favorite recipe that I use lots and lots of spinach with. Yes, at first you may think it sounds or even looks disgusting but don't judge to fast. This is a favorite in my family and everyone that tries it also LOVES it. It is also pretty healthy so it is the perfect treat!

1 banana
1/2 can of pineapple with juice (no sugar added)
1 small container of vanilla yogurt ( the carbmaster Kroger brand is my personal favorite)
lots and lots of spinach- I usually just fill up the rest of the blender until I can fit no more
*optional- If you would like to make it a protein smoothie you can add vanilla protein powder. I haven't tried it yet, but have heard it works great.

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy!
The green color also makes it twice as appetizing don't you think? Try it and you will be convinced as well!
