Using just three ingredients and one dish, you can create a simple, healthy green smoothie -- delicious for any time of day.
What you'll need:
Simple Green Smoothie
1 Banana
1 - 3 c. spinach (depending on your taste buds)
 1/2 c. frozen fruit (I use 6 frozen strawberries in this instructable)
1 32 oz. mason jar
Water (or orange juice)

Advanced Green Smoothie
To give your smoothie a little more nutritional pizazz, you can add just about any supplement.  Here are some of my favorites:
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
1 Tbsp ground sesame seed
1 Tbsp hemp seed
1 scoop green powder (mmmm...chlorophyll...)

Step 1: Find a jar that works for your blender

The first step is to find a jar with the same size mouth as the base of your blender. 
I have had a lot of success with re-using Classico pasta sauce jars, but you can use canning jars, too.
Your canning jar idea is BRILLIANT! Best of luck to you!
Yum...I think my boys would eat it too! :)
I tweaked your idea a little and started adding a half stick of margerine and a handful of Hi Hos to mine! Delish!
amazing idea on the canning jar and even more amazing recipe. simple and delicious. thanks!
Add avocado, then I'm in.
Damn, that be a freakin FANTSTIK smoothie!!! So healthy and filling! Perfect for after a workout :)
Very practical! A healthy breakfast made in a to-go container. Nice work.
Cool, sounds good and healthy. <br>(ps. You should put the picture of the smoothie in the intro, so it appears in the thumbnail image).
