Raspberry Spinach Smoothie Recipe:

Into Blender put:

1 cup Fat Free All Natural Vanilla Yogurt
1.5 cups Frozen Raspberries
2 Bananas
1 cup Orange Juice
1 Large handful of Spinach

I like this more than the last raspberry smoothie I made - I think the OJ made it a little sweeter and more smooth.  YUM.

Blend and serve!
