Skip the agave - it's higher in fructose than high fructose corn syrup. I have used this recipe and if you use one orange it is sweet enough

A little too much soy there:( Subsitute almond milk and no tofu would be a great smoothie. Have to get away from so much soy & soy products in our diets!!

agave is not good for ya...tofu and soy milk should always be organic since is not good for ya either....this is not very healthy after all

4 Cups of raw spinach leaves?! That's a lot of oxalate -- is it safe?

I loved it too! I added a little berry liquid stevia to it. Might add a few grains of salt next time. Yum!

I love spinach, however I thought it was a bit overpowering here. I don't normally add agave or honey to smoothies, but I had to add extra here. My 5 year old and I drank it, but we weren't really enjoying it.
