LOVABLE GREEN SMOOTHIE
You already know the benefits to enjoying more greens, so this is a recipe to use when you don't have much time and need to throw something together. This is great as a meal to start your day, or halved and enjoyed as a snack or with your normal breakfast!
Makes one large smoothie or two snack sized smoothies.
1-2 cups leafy greens (I like to mix it up, using something different each week)
1/2 handful of parsley or cilantro (may be omitted)
1/2 cup water
1 very ripe banana
1 cup frozen berries
1/2 apple or orange
1 tablespoon nut butter (optional)
Add greens, parsley, and water to blender and blend for about 15 seconds until greens are blended. If it isn't blending together, you may want to add more water.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until you have reached desired consistency.
If it isn't cold enough, you can add a couple of ice cubes and blend.
