Super energy green smoothie

1 Green smoothie a day (probably) keeps the doctor away!
Okay, fine, maybe not… but it sure keeps the caffeine intake at bay. Green smoothies every morning give me the energy to cut down on coffee. Smoothies are not only easy to make, but you can put your Ninja or Vitamix to great use by making this healthy recipe!

 

Personally, I was never a smoothie junkie until I started working at Whole Foods. A lot of my smoothies/juices were inspired from the juice bar we had in the store. Unfortunately, a smoothie a day can really add up when you’re purchasing from the juice bar; so, I invested in the Vitamix (which I ABSOLUTELY adore, Vitamix recipes to come…). This was one of the best decisions I made this year. Not only do you have the convenience of making top-notch smoothies/juices at home at a fraction of the cost, BUT, since you’re blending vs. cold-pressing, the smoothie ends up being more nutrient dense than a cold pressed juice.
This smoothie was inspired by my lovely friend who loves incorporating greens with a variety of fruits and soymilk in her smoothies. This ends up being a healthy green smoothie that is also flavorful and creamy.
