What is a good alternative for spinach? I have Hypothyroidism and have been told by my doctor to avoid raw spinach and kale... so what would be a better alternative?

Tried it, liked it, keep going back to it!! I was looking for recipes to use some fresh pineapple I had on hand and tried this. I was unsure how the spinach flavor would blend with the others. Surprisingly good!! Have made it since with less banana, more pineapple, and/or substituting low fat milk for almond milk to suit. Pros: Healthy mix of fruits, vegie and dairy Cons: None

Nice change of pace I am not a smoothie drinker but i thought i would try something different for the New Year. I used low fat milk instead of the almond milk since that is what i had on hand. It was a little thicker than i thought it would be but next time i will add a bit more milk. Good way to get in your daily fruits & veggies. Curious to see how quickly i get hungry :) Pros: Adaptable Cons: A little thick
