This is my favorite green smoothie recipe.
I know, I know… it doesn’t look very appealing. Instead of a pretty pink or purple color, it’s green! When I brought one to my husband the very first time I made one for him, his reaction was priceless. He had the most disgusted look on his face, and exclaimed, “What is that?!” After some convincing that it tastes much better than it looks, he decided to give it a try. “MMMMM,” he said. I must admit, green smoothies can be pretty scary. I have also had my fair share of green smoothies that tasted horrible.
Now I have my go-to green smoothie recipe, and even on my busiest day I will take just 5 minutes to blend one of these up. I always feel great after drinking one of these. Maybe it’s psychological because of all of the nutritious fruits and vegetables I see that I am adding to it, or maybe it’s because it actually is really healthy for you. Probably a little of both 🙂
