Ingredients:  
1 package fresh baby spinach
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup low fat vanilla soy milk (you can use 2% milk)
10 cubes of ice
2 heaping tablespoons splenda

Directions:
Directions:
Place all ingredients in a blender except the banana and the ice. Start blending and use the banana to push the spinach down to make sure it all gets blended. Add the banana and the ice cubes at the end of processing. If it is too thick, may add a little more milk. This is packed with all the power foods and will really be filling without adding calories.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If you like Smoothie King, you will love this blueberry smoothie. It tastes like dessert. Here are some helpful tips: Peel old bananas and put them in a sandwich bag and freeze individually so you have them when you wish to make the shake. Be sure to use the prewashed baby spinach so you can just rinse it before use.DO NOT USE FROZEN SPINACH. You can use fresh blueberries if you wish and just add a little more ice. This makes enough for 3 people but if you don't need that much you can freeze the remaining servings in a plastic cup and let the drink partially thaw before drinking. Each serving has one and a half servings of fruit, one serving of vegetable, one serving of dairy and only 100 calories. Due to the spinach this sometimes works as a mild laxative. If using 2% milk add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
