The Ultimate Green Smoothie

I hope you are having a wonderful week. If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I’m a BIG fan of green smoothies. They’re quick, easy, portable, delicious, and you can add a ton of different super-powered nutrients to each one. There is no limit when it comes to smoothie combinations. This green smoothie is packed with a ridiculous amount of feel good ingredients, it taste great and is perfect for those that struggle to get the greens in. It’s the ultimate green smoothie recipe. 

The Ultimate Green Smoothie Recipe

You don’t always need to follow a recipe when making green smoothies. It’s pretty simple if you ask me, although if you’re not careful even green smoothies packed with things like kale and bananas can easily turn into a high sugar bomb.

This green smoothie combination has all the essential nutrients you need. High protein, fats, fiber and sweetened with natural sugars. You can also add your favorite plant-based protein powder, I’m using the Garden of Life  Vegan Protein Powder with Vitamins and Probiotics. It’s awesome!

      That is so AWESOME, Linda!
      I love green juice, it’s one of my favorite self care practices. Usually the recommended storage time is 72 hours, but really I would say 48 hours. Enjoy!
      Hugs,

    Good post. I learn something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It’ll at all times be stimulating to read content material from other writers and apply a bit something from their store. I’d want to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
