Ingredients:  
2 C. water (add more if needed)
2 big handfuls of spinach
1 handful of collard greens and/or kale
1 slice of fresh beet
1/2 frozen banana
2-3 handfuls of frozen mixed berries
Slice of mango (optional)
a bit of sweetener (Stevia or honey)

Directions:
Directions:
Pour the water in a sturdy blender. Add the greens and a slice of beet. Mix for several minutes until very well ground up. With the blender still running, add the fruit a little at a time. If the smoothie gets too thick, add a bit more water. Sweeten to taste. I use the herbal sweetener Stevia, which has no effect on blood sugar, but you can substitute honey or a tiny bit of sugar. Enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or snack. Watch out, you might get addicted!

Personal Notes:
When you first read this recipe you will not think it sounds appetizing, but it is actually delicious! And it's packed with power foods. What a fabulous way to get more greens into your diet! If it weren't for this recipe I would never eat beets, kale, or collards, which are packed with nutrients. I'm so addicted to this smoothie--and the way I feel when I drink it-- that I make one every day.
