Start out with a lighter tasting green, like spinach. Kale is strong in a smoothie. And yes - search my dear - you'll find a ton!!!

I have been working on developing a savory green smoothie that suites my taste preferences. I came up with a receipe that I call my gaspacho smoothie. Tomatos, sundried tomatoes cucumber, bell pepper, a little onion and garlic and some spinach, yesterday I threw in some pesto I had made up for extra flavor.

Although I like both foods individually, I really dislike the combo of banana with greens, though I know that's a standard pairing for lots of people. My favorite green to use is baby spinach (must be young and tender).
I'm still trying combinations, but so far, the fruits I think go best with spinach are mango, peach, strawberry, orange, and apricot. A bit of homemade almond milk makes it extra creamy. I also add hemp seed, flax seed or oil, and powdered green food.
The one I just finished: spinach, mango, orange, almond milk, flax seed, hemp seed, powdered green food, drop of vanilla, dash of stevia, pinch of gray salt.

My favorite smoothies are the ones that come out well. :p I've had some disasters that went right down the drain or else I had to plug my nose.
Play with your food and add what feels right.
Lately I've been adding tons of cilantro to my salads and smoothies...what I add to anything I'm making changes over time and is dependent on what my body is hungry or thirsty for in the moment.
