Berry Green Smoothie

I am now an official fan of Green Smoothies! I've had one everyday since my Shrek Juice post. My only issue with the Green Monster Smoothie is that I'm not that big of a banana person. I want to incorporate a smoothie into my daily routine, and I just can't see myself having to drink one with banana in it every day. I also wanted an option without peanut butter. I figured that strawberries would work well to mask the spinach taste and also quell my sweet tooth when a craving hits. I searched all over the web for a strawberry/spinach recipe that was simple yet tasty, but they all called for bananas. I gave up after awhile, and just decided to wing it. Here's what I came up with:

1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup fat free milk
1 packet of Truvia

Throw everything in the blender (heaviest ingredients in the bottom, then fill with spinach) and blend until smooth.

It's just that simple, and it tastes delicious!
