Do you need a healthy boost to your mornings? This is what I have been drinking every morning and my waist line thanks me! I drink one of these as my breakfast. These green smoothies are packed with the fruits and veggies that you need for the day! You would think by putting veggies in a smoothie that it would taste sour or gross but you are wrong! You cant even tell! They are sooooo yummy! The great part of these smoothies are that you can really make them your own with what you have in your fridge at home! I will give you examples of different kids of green smoothies and what my favorite one is that I make. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll need….
2 TBS of Greek Yogurt- Vanilla or any other flavor you like.
1 hand full or cup of Greens- Spinach, Kale, Romaine Lettuce, Broccoli heads- Pick one of two
1 – 1 1/2 cups of Fruit- I use frozen fruit so I do not have to add ice and some fresh fruit as well.
Strawberries, peaches, mango, pineapple, bananas, apples, berries, oranges, kiwi, ect
Fill to the top of all your ingredients with Apple juice, water, coconut water, orange juice, almond milk.
1/2 cup of ice if you use fresh fruit and not frozen.
Raw oats or coconut flakes (optional)
Protein Powder (optional)
Peanut Butter or Honey (optional)
