Most mornings I like to start my day off with a Green Smoothie – it’s one of my favorite healthy smoothie recipes for breakfast. But, sometimes, my mornings are too hectic and that’s just not an option. I need to find a quick way to kick start my day.
Green smoothies are one of my favorite ways to get extra veggies, antioxidants and other healthy stuff into my diet. I find that this smoothie gives me what I need to tackle my day.
It’s packed with good-for-you stuff like kale, spinach, berries, citrus and flax. Don’t let the color scare you off! This smoothie is sweet and delicious – you can’t even taste the green stuff.
Even my little guy loves them! I’ll admit the first time I gave it to him, I didn’t let him see the color. But now, he asks for them just about every day. And, hey, who couldn’t use more veggies in their lives?!
