What's in Your Green Smoothie Today?

I think green smoothies are a great way to start the day and give you the energy needed to make it through the morning.  This morning my green smoothie is one of my favorites and its so super simple. 

Put into your blender a handful of spinach and of kale (large stem removed), 1 cup of blueberries, and a cup of almond or coconut milk (unsweetened), 1 cup of water.  Blend till smooth.  This makes one serving.

If you like less sweet smoothies like I do, this one is perfect.  If you like more sweetness, add another fruit, like half of a banana, strawberries, or apple.  If you don't have almond milk, you can use another milk, water, coconut water, juice or a combination of liquids.  You can also add in some superfoods like blue-green algae, bee pollen, goji berries, cordyceps, etc.  Try different combinations and you will come up with your favorites!  I will be posting more smoothie recipes too, so stay tuned. 

Here's to an energetic day!

PS. This smoothie is purple in color from the blueberries. Green refers to the greens inside!
