Everyone's Favorite Green Smoothie

You’ll be happy to know that kids as well as adults tend to seriously love this green smoothie.

It has a beautifully appealing green color with easily lovable delicious flavors. Baby spinach, baby kale and baby chard are less bitter than fully mature greens so go for these to start out with if you can.

Sam’s Club (at the time of this writing) carries Taylor Farms Organic baby kale medley, in a tub, triple washed and ready to enjoy. Costco has organic baby kale. If you don’t have access to baby greens, use mature greens. A squeeze of lemon juice or a small handful of parsley will help mask any bitterness from greens if you ever feel it’s necessary.

This smoothie is so refreshingly good and simple as is- don’t be afraid to try it.

To keep your green smoothie from turning an unappealing brown or brownish-green color, stay clear of adding strawberries, grape juice or any other red or purple colors.
