If you’ve enjoyed a green smoothie before, you know that is oh so delicious! If you haven’t you might be thinking there’s no way I’m gonna like that! Raw greens in my smoothie?!?! You’ve got to be kidding….YUCK!! Stop right there. I’m telling you to try it and you will love it! Lily, my 3 year old daughter even loves them. Making smoothies with Mommy is a morning tradition around here. We make all different kinds and the most exciting part for Lily is anticipating what color the smoothie is going to be.
Green smoothies are a great way for the whole family to get the in the nutrient-rich foods needed for optimum health. There are so many different options, you can make if with all different types of greens and fruit. Picky eaters won’t even taste the greens because adding fruit makes it taste great. I wasn’t in the mood for a salad yesterday, so I opted for a green smoothie instead! I got my raw greens and I was super satisfied. Here’s a basic and delicious one for you to try.
