Miss P's Super-healthy Spinach Smoothies

Toby calls these "Mummy's Magic Smoothies" as he thinks they look like magic potion. In a way, he's right-the amount of goodness in these does make them pretty magic! Don't be put off by the colour, in fact be encouraged by it. There's a whole load of spinach inside and you can't even taste it. This counts as at least 2 of your "5 a day", so really is a rather magical start to the day...

Makes enough for 2 large smoothies
2 frozen bananas (if your bananas are going over ripe, cut into large chunks and keep in a freezer bag in portions. They're perfect for chucking into smoothies as they also act as ice cubes)
2 large handfuls fresh leaf spinach
3-4 heaped tbsp fat free vanilla yoghurt (you can use plain but vanilla adds extra sweetness)
A good squeeze of maple syrup (approx 2 tsp but you can add 1 and adjust the flavour later)
250ml orange juice

Just throw all the ingredients into your blender and whizz on a medium setting. Stir, and if necessary add a dash of water to loosen. Whizz again until the spinach leaves are very fine. Drink and feel the goodness!
