How healthy are smoothies? I went out and bought myself a Nutribullet. The promise of healthy smoothies and the quick breakfasts lured me in. So this is my normal everyday smoothies: a good handful of spinach; some fruit that is in season ( apple, pear, etc), I toss in a banana, and maybe some berries. 3 tb of Greek yogurt, 2tb of peanut butter, and some ground flax seed. (The PB and yogurt help with protein -- I'm vegetarian). Is this a healthy habit or am I fooling myself? --- Chris
