Green Smoothie?
This could easily be dessert but it happens to be a 'green smoothie'. Rich and creamy, smooth and dreamy—don't neglect the magic of a frozen banana to give the mouth feel we have come to know and love in ice cream.

This smoothie is a combination of one frozen banana, half a fresh banana, a cup of diced mango, a handful of blackberries and two cups of baby spinach, all blended with a cup of almond milk. A great way to start the day. The blackberries mask the green color - who would know this is loaded with vitamins and nutrients?

For a thicker version to serve as dessert (similar to soft serve) use two frozen bananas and less almond milk - or for a richer version - use cashew milk. Substitute fruit and berries for some great flavor combos. Use the frozen bananas for the base and go wild!
