Fabulous! Thanks for the ideas. Wish I had spinach on hand. I'll just have to come up with an excuse to make green food another day. :)

I made the Peanut Butter Chocolate Green Smoothies without the chocolate (because I didn't have any). Delicious! My kids thought they were in heaven--so did I! Perfect after-school treat. Thanks!

We have made the Chocolate peanut butter green smoothie so many times that we have almost worn out our blender. Thank you for that recipe. I feel like I could have it every day for weeks and not tire of it. Oh wait..I have had it for weeks and not tired of it! :)
