All you need to make this amazing green smoothie is a blender. My daughter made up this smoothie recipe. She likes to make it and take it to work for a filling lunch drink. 

It can be made in advance (for example the evening before), refrigerated, and then taken to work or school the next morning.

Green Smoothie Making Tip How to Freeze Spinach

My daughter likes to add frozen spinach to her smoothies. 

To help to save time when she wants to make the smoothie, she prepares the spinach ingredient ahead of time. 

She purchases a package of fresh baby spinach. She then packages it in 1 1/2 cup (firmly packed) portions (or whatever size portions are desired) in sealed plastic bags, and stores them in the freezer (see picture).

Next time she is ready to make a healthy green smoothie with spinach, the spinach is ready to be popped into the blender!
