Go-To Green Drink

17 Mar

Another one of my favorite things: starting my morning with a refreshing clean green smoothie.

Every now and then I decide to mix it up, but I have a new go-to smoothie that I can’t get enough of in the morning.

Going along with the “green theme” for St. Patty’s Day, I found it appropriate to post this recipe today. Also, you might appreciate this smoothie tomorrow morning in case you have one too many adult green beverages tonight!

Here’s the run down on the goods:

Almond milk: low calorie, flavorful source of calcium (as long as it’s fortified)

Banana: great source of potassium; perfect for getting rid of excess water weight from St. Patty’s Day!

Celery, Carrots, Cucumbers, Spinach: hydration, fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron

Mango: Fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A

Fresh ginger: may help relieve indigestion
