Ode to Blendtec and Smoothie Recipe with Spinach

I adore my Blendtec Blender! I have a green smoothie nearly every day and it tastes fabulous.  My kids love them too.  I use my Blendtec, oh, at least once a day and sometimes multiple times per day. I have become kind of a little famous with my children’s friends because every time they come over they ask if I will make them smoothies. I love that the smoothies taste like a dessert but are secretly healthy. When I was away on vacation for a month this last summer I stayed with my sister in law who has a (I’m whispering this so no one will hear) Vitamix.  I made a few smoothies in it and I couldn’t get them to blend up.  I know there are people who love their Vitamix as much as I love my Blentec, but I honestly think Blendtec is heads and shoulders above Vitamix.  It blends better without even having a tamper.  Anyway, that’s just my personal opinion.  I have had my blendtec for several years.  I did have a problem with the rubber seal on the bottom leaking after a couple years.  I got a brand new replacement for free.  That’s the kind of company they are.  Now on to this yummy smoothie recipe with spinach!
