I am excited to share this Amazing Green Smoothie Recipe with you. As you know I love to drink green smoothies. They are full of superfoods, are gluten free and can easily be Paleo too!. I like to drink them because it is an easy way for me to get my veggies in first thing in the morning. This green smoothie is so good the kids will love it! The perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
One tip that I learned is to use lemon essential oil or lemon rind (but in my opinion the lemon essential oil works better) to take the “bite” out of the greens. A great tip is to freeze your own fruit when it is a stockpile price. You can even freeze green smoothies.
I love to freeze ingredients for my green smoothies! It saves me time and money!
