I don’t know about you, but this time of year I start to crave fresh and healthy foods. I try to eat salads, but sometimes I’m just not in the mood which is why I love this healthy green power smoothie.
If you’re new to smoothie making then this recipe is for you because it tastes pretty mild and is even kid-friendly. I like a well-blended smooth consistency in my smoothies which is why I peel the apple and cucumber, but feel free to leave the peels on if you wish. Also, I like to add an additional boost of nutrients with chia seeds and hemp hearts, but if you don’t have these on hand you can leave them out.
I call this a Green Power Smoothie because I always feel a burst of energy after drinking it that helps me power through my day. Enjoy!
