Spinach Smoothie Recipe

Spinach is typically thought of as a lunch or dinner ingredient in a savory recipe.  I have been thinking about eating more greens throughout the day.  Spinach can be in a breakfast smoothie with a few creamy ingredients to start the morning.  Smoothies have a basic recipe of fruit/vegetable, starch like yogurt or banana, something frozen and liquid.  Those four ingredients can be interchanged.  Spinach can be blended to taste like many other things, but give you a nutrition boost with iron and vitamin A.  Here is a smoothie inspired by Rasa Juice Bar in Santa Fe.  They have a lot of interesting combinations.  The yoga studio has a community yoga class for a suggested donation of $10 each Sunday at 4pm.  I went to a class that focused on gardening stretching and poses.  I recommend the class and the smoothies.
