the team green smoothie

Green smoothies are good for you. Period. Now it might take some courage to work up to drinking your greens if you’re new to this lifestyle, but trust me, your body will thank you for it. Ever since I went off coffee every morning, I’ve been drinking smoothies (mostly green ones) instead and I just feel so alive.

I like to add creaminess to my green smoothies with things like bananas, almond milk, and oil (either coconut or flax). It just helps with masking the idea of blended greens and I prefer this texture if I can’t have straight up green juice. I’ve also loaded this guy with protein in the form of hemp hearts and Vega One so it’ll do the body extra good first thing in the morning. So now it’s time for you to join team green!
