    Default Green smoothie recipe without banana?

    I made our first green smoothie yesterday with banana, yoghurt, milk, honey, and 2 handfuls of spinach leaves. (Trying to include more veggies in bub's diet!) It was lovely.

    But most green smoothie recipes I see contain banana, which can constipate a little boy if he eats too many. So does anyone have some green smoothie recipes without banana?

    Thanks!

    I do:
    Raspberries
    Orange
    Spinach
    Flaxseed
    Protein powder
    Water

    Or for a creamy one I omit the orange and use milk (unsweetened soy) instead of water. Sometimes I add cacao for a choc berry-yum!
