Greens and Fruit smoothie

I love smoothies especially for on the go snack or breakfast. This one is a go-to here. And trust me you can't taste the greens. The smoothies finished below are of smoothies without any berries and you can hardly see the greens as is. We love to change around the ingredients and see what we come up with.
1-2 C of spinach or kale (with kale- strip the leaves off and discard the stem)
1 orange peeled
1 C homemade non-dairy milks (hemp, almond, cashew etc) we love hemp!
1-2 bananas fresh or frozen
2 C mixed fruit of ANY kind (we like berries and they hide the green well)
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
Other great additions are coconut oil, frozen coconut milk, probiotics, and filtered water

1. Put the greens and milk in first and blend till smooth (if you have an awesome blender such as a vitamix or blendtek then no need to seperate the steps)
2. Add in the fruit, flax seeds, and any other add ins and put in water or milks as needed then blend till smooth
3. enjoy as a smoothie or freeze into popsicles for later
