There are so many fantastic variations and additions that can be whizzed up in a green smoothie. I almost don't know where to start but the following is my current go to recipe. It's a wonderful cleansing breakfast after a big dinner the night before. If I'm off to a flying start with the day and forget to have breakfast then this is a perfect and much needed mid morning boost but most of all I love it as a little bit of green bliss after a yoga workout. Smoothies are rather like cold soups in a way, there's lots of wiggle room to add your favorite flavors and leave out those you're not so keen on. Just experiment and find your favorite.
My daughters love this drink, they didn't expect too but they did. How wonderful that everyone is getting plenty of greens, protein and omega fatty acids in one drink. Heaven. Try it and see what you think.
