Orange Banana Avocado Smoothie

In yesterday's recipe, creamy orange avocado smoothie, I recommended using a banana instead of sugar for sweetness factor. Usually, that works. But this morning, I actually used the banana. The resulting smoothie was thick, barely sippable, and muddled. Bleh! I added more orange juice and some sugar and it was delicious again. I'll be sure to test my suggestions before recommending them.

12 -16 oz. orange juice -sorry didn't measure what I added
1 banana
1 1/2 cups spinach

Blend and enjoy. Yields 32 oz.
