Spinach berry smoothie
He took a sip and paused, looking down into his glass. Then he looked up, "I don't want to admit that I like this," said our friend who insisted that he would never enjoy a "spinach smoothie." There are many versions of the spinach smoothie. Some lean more towards a "healthy" drink and others lean more towards a "dessert". My daughter insisted that I include a "dessert" version, because that is what she prefers. Shocker.
