Green Smoothie

The green smoothie. Something i never thought i would enjoy but has recently swept the "fit" world. So, i thought, why not try it. It has now become my favorite breakfast or post work out sip. I know what your're not sure about that bright green color, can you taste the veggies you ask?

I get it, cause those we're the exact questions i asked myself. But let me reassure you, the spinach in this yummy smoothie is, though visibly vibrant and noticeable, is practically invisible when it comes to taste.   

The spinach (or green veggie of choice) adds a great dose of nutrients the the already healthy and sweet fruits. I usually add a little honey, but if you wanted just the fruit alone would make it sweet and satisfying.

Go on. Give it a won't regret it!
