Green Smoothies

For awhile now I've been making smoothies with frozen fruit and yogurt and banana. Me and Mya share one and she likes them and they're good for her/us, so it's win win. But recently it seems like everyone's been drinking these "green smoothies" and I have to say, they look gross. I only found out a couple days ago what was in these green smoothies and really, it's all the same stuff I already put in with just some fresh spinach added. How bad could it be? They say you can't even taste the spinach because of all the other stuff. So, today I gave it a shot.

Note that my smoothie is far from green. I think I might've screwed up? But I can't figure out how...I put a ton of spinach in it, and then when I noticed it wasn't even green I added more. I also put some honey, yogurt, Mya milk, a whole banana, some frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries). This is how it turned out. It tasted good and I felt good knowing I was getting even more healthiness than I usually get in my smoothies but I still wanted it to be green.

If you look close you can see little green bits floating around...yum! Not a bad way to use up any leftover spinach you might have since you can't even taste it...!
