spinach and fruiit smoothie recipe

I love making smoothies and juices for our family; I love that we can get so many fruits and vegetables into one simple snack or meal.   There are a ton of great smoothie and juice recipes but to find one that includes spinach as its main ingredient that everyone in the family loves is a rare find. I have been making this healthy Spinach and Fruit Juice Recipe since the start of the year and it is truly one of our favorites.  It requires only a few simple ingredients as well!
