Spinach Smoothie

This is a scary thing to me. Spinach in a smoothie? That sounds, well....disgusting to me. The more I read about it, the more it sounded like maybe something that I would like try. I have read that it didn't taste spinach-y or taste off and it was even sweet. I have decided to go with your basic smoothie with a bit of spinach. Most recipes call for more spinach than this and this may be a good way to get your kiddos to eat their veggies, milk and fruit. Yes, we are Kroger shoppers XD.

Spinach Smoothie
1/2 frozen banana
6-8 small strawberries (frozen)
1/2 cup frozen spinach
1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt
sweetener to taste
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
1 tbsp. ground flaxseed (optional)

Blend all until very smooth. Serve immediately.
You can't taste the spinach. I used Splenda this time, next time I will use honey.
