For people who are having problem with texture. Try cutting off the stems of the BABY spinach, chopping the carrots into smaller peices and blend them first for a few minutes then add the fruit. You can add or subtract fruits also. I love adding pineapple juice or grapejuice to mine. And my mom adds bluberries and other berries to hers.

I like it better with the spinach and carrots juiced first, and then added to the fruit. If you don't want to juice them, or don't have a juicer - try freezing them before putting them in the blender. It helps them break up more and turns out less.... chunky.

A Vitamix or other strong blender makes these green smoothies great tasting with no chunks. You need to experiment to get the right balance of sweetness. I like to add ground flaxseed/hempseed for extra protein.
