Green Smoothie

I love smoothies because there are so many options to create a quick breakfast or snack. I use leafy green vegetables like fresh spinach, collards, swiss chard, kale, or lettuce. I also enjoy adding fresh seasonal fruit, ginger, and green superfood powder.

So replace that donut and coffee with something that will give you energy without the crash. Thinking about grabbing a bag of chips? Blend a vitamin packed smoothie instead.


*Increases your fruit and vegetable intake

*Clear skin

*Weight loss


Ingredients for one of my favorite smoothies:

2-3 handfuls of fresh spinach

1 Banana, peeled

Half cup of fresh or frozen strawberries (or other seasonal fruit)

Half cup of water or soymilk

1 teaspoon of fresh chopped ginger

A few cubes of ice (if your fruit isn't frozen)

Blend and enjoy!

Don't throw away those overripe bananas....Freeze them and toss them into a smoothie.
