Are you getting your daily greens? Probably not. Because if you're anything like me, there are two massive cracks in the "Drink a Green Smoothie Daily" idea.
First, they take planning.
Second, they taste like crap.
Two big ol' strikes against the daily habit that's supposed to get you skin like a Disney princess, the waist of a geisha, and forty-thousand pounds of nutritional gold. Not to mention, Dr. Oz insists a green drink daily helps your body & skin turn back time, getting a youthful glow and cutting back on cellular damage that can lead to serious health concerns later in life.
Good news! The only thing you need to rethink is your Green Smoothie recipe. It's possible to make a creamy, delicious smoothie in 2 minutes or less, packed with cups of spinach or kale, the natural healthy fat of an avocado, and tons of zesty flavor you'll actually love to drink. As a food blogger, I've tried 45 smoothie recipes in 21 days, and I can tell you that THIS IS THE ONE. So slurp up!
