Green smoothies are not pretty.
But man, are they good.
It makes me feel so virtuous - starting the stay out with fruits and veggies?
And it really does taste amazing.
You can customize it however you like - just make sure you have fruits, veggies, and some sort of thickening agent - yogurt, banana, etc.
Sometimes if I'm feeling fancy I add some fresh ginger....or even some cilantro.
Listen, don't knock it until you try it!
Here's a simple recipe for a super green and super yummy smoothie.
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 peeled orange
handful of strawberries, blackberries, peach slices
(this time of year, go with frozen)
5 large leaves of Kale, ribs removed
Water, as needed to thin out
Combine in blender. Pour into glass and enjoy!
