Green Goddess Smoothie

IMG_3751

 

I have to say, it’s taken a while to convert to green smoothies, I’m not a super fan of drinking vegetables, I just don’t like the taste. Spinach is great of course, because you can sneak it into a fruity smoothy and not notice it’s there. But the other ingredients are slightly more prominent. Well, after plenty of trial and error, I’ve finally made one that tastes good! Like, really good! The mint and the cucumber make it really refreshing, kind of masking the fact that most of the drink is veggies! Spinach and Kale are a really high source of almost all the essential vitamins and minerals, and the heart-healthy fats in the avocado help your body absorb all of that goodness (A lot of nutrients are ‘fat-soluble’ meaning it should be eaten with some fat for your body to be able to digest the nutrients efficiently).

It’s time to drink your greens!
