Delicious and Healthy Green Smoothie
Smoothies are a great way to get in a serving of veggies first thing in the morning. They are also perfect for when you have fruit or vegetables in your fridge that you want to use up before they go bad. I love to add cilantro, parsley, spinach, arugula, romaine lettuce, cucumber, lemons and limes (skin on if organic) and fresh tumeric or ginger root to mine!
Below is a delicious smoothie chocked full of vitamins and minerals. I added avocado for healthy fat and creaminess, ginger and turmeric root for added antioxidants, cilantro to help with heavy metal detox and coconut water and aloe juice for added hydration of the colon and body as a whole!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
