Tasted really good, a great way to sneak in some veggies too! After reading a review that the taste of the yogurt was too strong, I used NOOSA coconut yogurt so that the flavor enhanced the smoothie. I think that really helped!

Very thick I used all ingredients as listed and my smoothie was not as green as the picture. Maybe I should have packed the spinch leaves in the measurement cup? I thought it was very thick and I mainly tasted the plain Greek yogurt. Pros: Healthy ingredients Cons: Very thick
