Shine Bright Green Smoothie


Recipe inspired by Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie with a few tweaks to make it work for me. 

Okay friends, this recipe is one of the best things you can start doing for your body today! I first came across this recipe after giving birth to my third baby. I was feeling tired all the time and my mind felt extra cloudy. I was also losing so much hair and my skin was bad… Ummm, really bad. So, I decided to give it a try with minor changes that worked a little better for me. The Shine Bright Green Smoothie was exactly what my body needed — I just didn’t know it.

It’s full of antioxidants and light enough to get you going in the morning. I make it every morning, it is currently the first thing I have after I workout. I’ve been taking it for three weeks now and I already feel a natural energy boost. I make one serving at a time, but you could do up to two servings and store it in the fridge. Up to you!
