Favorite green smoothie recipes

Hi mamas I am wanting to go on a green smoothie cleanse for a week or so and I am looking for more recipes. I am open to all sorts of suggestions. I have a great health food store in town with lovely organic ingredients and a local growers makrket for harder to find unusual ingredients. So let me have it! What are you favorite greem smoothie recipes?

Re: Favorite green smoothie recipes

I always just add a handfull of spinach to a banana and whatever smoothie. Don't just blend an orange, though, the white stuff makes it gross (I learned from experience). You can do kale or chard or whatever too, but they have a stronger flavor. I find that a banana is the only necessary fruit and then you can customize from there.

This is my basic recipe:

scroll down for the shake-
then I might add whatever to it. Also, minus the lemon, I might add raw cacao powder and extra stevia for a chocolate shake- mmmmmm.

I am addicted to the following simple recipe:

frozen bananas
peanut butter
sweetened chocolate almondmilk

I swear you can add these in any amounts and it tastes awesome.
