Thirsty Thursday- My Favorite Green Smoothie

The classic Green Smoothie is my favorite.  Just your basic fruit, coconut water, green vegetables, and maybe one or two other ingredients to fancy it up a bit.  The berries make the color of the smoothie not so green, but they add a lot of natural sweetness and antioxidants!  Use this recipe if you’re just getting into making smoothies or if you’re just looking for something refreshing and nutritious!

Classic Green Smoothie

1 cup coconut water

1 banana

1 c berries* (this is what makes it NOT green!)

1-2 handfuls of kale*

1-2 handfuls of spinach*

You can stop here, but sometimes I add these ingredients too for extra nutrients:

1 TBSP flaxseed or chia seeds

1/4 c greek yogurt

*I use frozen berries, kale and spinach.  Kale and spinach tend to go bad quickly in my fridge so I always buy them fresh and then freeze them which makes them perfect for smoothies!
