Green Machine Smoothie

It takes a lot for a smoothie to make me take notice these days.

Don’t get me wrong, I love smoothies. Problem is, after a while, they all start to taste (and look) about the same.

Huge bag of spinach

And then we went to Costco and bought the biggest bag of spinach I’ve ever seen (2.5 lbs worth!!), 6 ripe avocados, and a gorgeous pineapple. The result? The most amazing smoothie I’ve ever made.

And just look at how bright and vibrant it looks.

ItΒ radiates health. And believe me when I say it’s an explosion of flavor in your mouth.
