  1. Hey! I made a really similar smoothie on Saturday- only I used Mangos and Strawberries. I have found that by adding the spinach and liquids first, and blending that up really well before adding the fruit and ice, it blends a little better. Otherwise I have trouble incorporating the spinach. I used 1/2 a mango, 5 strawberries, 1/2 C almond milk, 2 Tbsp Chobani plain non-fat, 1 scoop whey protein, 2 C spinach and a lot of ice. It makes 2 big smoothies. Love the smoothies!
