Green Monster Smoothie

This has helped me to increase my daily servings of 
fruits and vegetables at the same time
Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, 
it helps my energy more than coffee. 
If you like your smoothies more creamy, add a little yogurt to the mix.
Plus you can always mix and match whatever fruits you have on hand.
Just know if you add strawberries, like I did, it will be an ugly brownish color.
still pretty tasty though!

What You'll Need:
1/2 banana (frozen or not)
1/2 cup chopped frozen pineapple
1/2 large apple, peeled and coarsely chopped
3/4 cups orange juice
1 1/4 cups baby spinach leaves, rinsed and dried
1-2 tbsp. honey (optional)

What To Do:
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until completely smooth.  Taste and adjust sweetness with additional honey, if desired.  Serve immediately.
