Secret Spinach Smoothie

It's summer. It's hot. Your dog needs hydration. Why not make it nutritional like this one packed with spinach for powerful antioxidant protection and bone-supportive nutrients including calcium and magnesium, green tea for brain function and lower risk of cancer, and local honey for allergies. It has just enough sweetness from the fruit which completely covers the spinach and can be fed as a refreshing drink (add some crushed ice for a slushie smoothie) or frozen for quick pick me ups anytime. 

I love these too but I like to add a little stevia to my glass.
