I have a super simple and deliciously healthy green smoothie recipe that I’ve been itching to share with you. Honestly, it’s SO easy to make and I always feel so nourished from within after I have this.
There are plenty of green smoothies out there, but that grassy, bitter aftertaste? No thanks. I want something that not only fuels and nourishes my bod, but I actually ENJOY drinking. I also wanted to create a green smoothie recipe that my kids are going to like the taste of too. We all know kids need to eat their greens and this is a quick, easy and tasty way to get some green goodness into them!
Another great thing about this recipe is that you can adjust it however you like - you can add a variety of green vegetables or fruits, such as lettuce, pear or honeydew melon. Prefer a sweeter juice? Swap the coconut water with fresh juice.
I’m very happy that this recipe has been a huge success in my household, and I can’t wait for you to give it a try!
Here it is, my Green Machine Smoothie recipe from My Kids Eat Volume 2.
