The Ultimate Green Smoothie is absolutely refreshing, delicious, and healthy! Made from fresh fruit and vegetables, this green smoothie has the fiber and nutrients we all need.
This recipe makes two servings at 157 calories each, 6 grams of fiber, and only natural sugars from the fruits used to make it. There is no added sugar or honey because you don’t need it to sweeten the flavor. It’s sweetened naturally and in this case, nature does it best. Even your youngest eater will love this tasty smoothie that is more like a treat than anything and better yet, he or she will never know they are having spinach at the same time!
I love smoothies for an uplifting mid-day treat because it feels like I’m cheating, but I’m not! In fact, I’m giving myself an energy boost before or after working out and loving it. We all need the nutrients and fiber found in this smoothie, such as the protein, as well as the Vitamin A, C, B-6, E, K, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, and more in this smoothie. Being healthy is important, but this smoothie makes it delicious and refreshing, also.
