Kids and adults will love this yummy easy green smoothie. Whether you are looking for a quick breakfast, afternoon snack or even a dessert, smoothies will fit the bill. Use this recipe as a starting point and start mixing and matching your favorite fruits and veggies.
Fresh and Frozen Ingredients
These fresh and frozen, ingredients can vary greatly. More vegetables, less fruit, grains, oatmeal, agave for a bit of sweetness, endless options.
- Chia Seeds
- Coconut Water
- Endless Options…
It is said we eat with our eyes first. More ingredients don’t always translate into a pretty colorful smoothie. May taste great, it just might look a bit brown or grey in color. Let your taste buds guide you to new creations and flavors.
In a hurry, use frozen fruit. If you have kids, let them in on the fun! Choosy eaters love creating their own meals and this is an easy way to introduce new foods. Packed full of flavor, nutrients, and fiber. Gotta love smoothies! Any time of the year!
Have some fun in the kitchen and don’t take yourself too seriously. Subscribe, share, and let me know how “YOU” made it your own. I look forward to your positive comments and suggestions. Love from VGFL.
