IMG_6600 Healthy Smoothie: BERRY GREEN SMOOTHIE: Whenever I feel the need to turn my smoothie to the “green” side, I generally do so with spinach.

Spinach blends easier and isn’t as bitter as other greens like kale and dandelion, which makes it easier to create a delicious smoothie. Parents, keep this in mind when trying to get your kids to drink green smoothies.

Berries are an excellent source of antioxidants and apples helps facilitate detox as well as adding lots of fiber. This smoothie has 49% of your daily recommended value of fiber.
