This Green Smoothie is chock full of nutrients to fuel your body!
One of the easiest ways I get all the daily veggies my body needs is by enjoying a green smoothie or two. There are so many benefits of drinking green smoothies, including: weight loss/maintenance, increased fiber intake for colon health, antioxidents for optimal health and fitness, mental clarity and focus, increased energy, clearer skin, and minerals for healthy bones.
This smoothie is so quick and easy to make. I just throw my spinach, cucumbers, celery, pear, and lemon juice into my Nutribullet for about 30 seconds and it’s done. Most days I add a bit of cayenne pepper to give it a little kick… I LOVE the way that tastes!
If your natural instinct is to say YUCK at the notion of drinking something green, I encourage you to give it a try! This smoothie is naturally sweetened by the pear and is so yummy. I promise it won’t taste like spinach. 🙂
