Green smoothies are so popular and for good reason- you’re one glass away from feeling great and getting a healthy boost of vitamins and micro-nutrients! It is not always easy to find time to sit down and eat a whole bunch of greens every day, but making a green smoothie is a quick way to get a wholesome dose of nutrition. Trust me; your body will thank you.

It is a lot of fun to change things up and add a variety of ingredients to my daily green smoothie, but in today’s video I share with you how you can make a green smoothie and one recipe I really enjoy.

No matter what you add to your smoothie, remember greens are always the star!
