  1. This is sooooo good. I only made half and it was plenty. I also put one scoop of Visalis just for added vitamins and etc. YUM, YUM. Thanks for posting. Please post more low carb smoothies. 🙂

  2. This smoothie is the best ever! I now have it every morning. I do add extra cinnamon and a scoop of protein powder. I really can’t taste the spinach at all. I love this blog, and look forward to trying lots of new lo carb goodies. Thanks for posting. (I commented before, but it was deleted. I think because I mentioned a product, and didn’t know I wasn’t allowed. 🙁 Sorry.)

  3. I use kale instead of spinach sometimes
