Green Strawberry Smoothie

Yes... this sounds like a really strange, and potentially gross thing, but it is SO good.  If you struggle to get your kiddos to eat veggies, this is a great way to do it.  Avery wouldn't touch spinach, but drank this like it was candy.

Ingredients:
1 c. strawberries, chopped
2 T. plain lowfat yogurt
1 t. agave nectar
1/2 c. fresh spinach
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut milk
1 c. ice cubes

Directions:
Place all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth.  Enjoy! 

Variations:
Add 2 T. shredded coconut
Add 2 T. almonds
Use 1/2 c. strawberries & 1/2 c. blueberries in place of just strawberries
Instead of spinach, you can use 1/2 of an avocado chopped up
