    The quality of your blender will definitely affect lumpiness lol. If it's spinach and stuff that's staying chunky you could try rubbing it in some lemon juice first and leaving it to sit for a while, it will soften it a bit.

    To minimise lumpiness, blend all the ingredients first, then add water and blend again. Blend on the highest setting for a good minute or two.

    Today's 'green' smoothie is brought to you by kale, spinach, coconut oil, lemon juice, ginger, cranberry juice and strawberries! It was a beautiful green (picture grass clippings) until I added the strawberries!! Tastes good though!

    ETA: won't let me add a pic - hang on.

    Is the blender blending it well? I still haven't made one, I need to go buy some ingredients.

    I blended it for longer today and I also peeled the leaves off the stalks, even to the tops and on the spinach as well, seemed to work better and a bit smoother.

    I use one of these blenders. Despite it being less powerful than my regular blender it does a better job of blending everything. The blending container doubles as a drink bottle too which is handy.

    ETA: picture won't work but you can google george foreman mix and go blender. They are only about $35-$40 too.

    I made some for DH and I this week for breaky. I used frozen raspberries, fresh strawberry, 1/4 cup oatmeal, banana, honey, spinach, Greek yogurt and some milk. Delicious, and very filing.
