After experimenting over the past few months, I've settled on this simple smoothie as a wonderful post-workout recovery green smoothie. I make this in a Black & Decker Crushmaster blender (which holds 42 oz.) and it makes about three 12 oz. servings.
I usually fill up some 12 oz. drink containers and freeze them immediately after making. Thaw and drink at your leisure. However, single-serving fresh with a Magic Bullet is the way to go.
1/2 cup of blueberries
4 strawberries (remove the stems)
1 large handful of kale
2 tbsp of Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein, Chocolate Peanutbutter
(Just add a little peanut butter if you don't want the whey protein).
Some ice cubes and water, depending on how many ounces and thickness you want.
The kale has a ... fruitier...taste than spinach, it's quite good (we're fortunate to have some locally grown kale). The smoothie will turn a nice strawberry pink color (it's not actually green).

With a Magic Bullet I modify it like this:
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 a banana
1 tsp - 1 tbsp of Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein Powder (Chocolate Peanut Butter)
a smaller handful of kale
Nutritionally, this is about 1.5-2 servings of the above recipe.
Warning: If you drink one after doing an Insanity workout, you will suddenly feel fired up to do another workout! Enjoy!
