a go-to green smoothie

Still can’t get yourself to try out a green smoothie?

This recipe is a great start for those who are still not quite sure about drinking a green-colored drink.  I based it off a green smoothie I love to buy at a café down the street.


I call this my go-to green smoothie because I seriously make it almost every day during the week. 

It is simple enough to whip up in a magic bullet in less than 5 minutes.

The coconut water makes this refreshing and light, but I put enough good stuff in it to serve as your morning or mid-day meal.


If I don’t have coconut water, I just use skim milk. And it’s great with a few fresh mint leaves blended in.

So, I hope you all give it a try!  Whether you are a green smoothie fan or not, I think you will be a fan of this one.
