Green Smoothies

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!

      Well… make sure you put that greek yogurt in them to give it the sweet nest it deserves and only put in the fruits you like. Hope this helps!

    I’ve never thought to add greek yogurt! What a great idea to make it a little creamier and add protein!
