Simple Green Smoothie


A Simple Green Smoothie is just what’s needed after a season of indulgence, don’t you think?

I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to stay on track over the holidays.

I have the indulgences, just like everyone else, but for me, it’s more about getting off track with all the food prep, healthy meal planning, food prep and planning that goes by the wayside.

And since I’m coming down off that season of wild spontaneity (who needs to cut up veggies ahead of time – not me!), I’m lovin’ this Simple Green Smoothie recipe to help get the goodness back into me.

There are countless recipes for green smoothie on the internet, but this one I love because it actually tastes sweet (thanks pear!)

And if my mom made it and likes it, you my friend can too.

My favourite green smoothie after a run last week

By the way, you know how whales are swallowing plastic straws and they’re like the worst thing since BPA?

Well I’ve been on the search for a decent substitute for a while and finally found my favourite: these metal straws from Healthy Human. They’re perfect – and look great in pics, too 😉

If you want to check them out, here’s where you can buy them.

Have you tried a green smoothie before?

Let me know in the comments and if you try this one, let me know what you think 🙂
