Green Berry Detox Smoothie

Happy New Year! It’s going to take a while to get used to writing 2014 as the date. Did you have a fun New Year’s Eve? Do you have any resolutions this year?? If you have any resolutions to eat healthy, this simple smoothie recipe is sure to help you out. It’s quick, easy, completely natural, and jam packed with nutrients to start the year off right. I love starting my day off with a smoothie because it gives you a boost of energy and helps make sure you’re getting enough fruits and veggies daily without any worry.

Recipe Rundown
Taste: Sweet and addicting, you can’t taste the spinach.
Texture: I made this smoothie smooth and thin enough to swallow easily but if you prefer thicker smoothies just add less liquid.
Ease: Ultra quick and easy.
Appearance: Kind of a weird color but still delicious.
Pros: Quick, super refreshing, and healthy.
Cons: Absolutely none. If you need to serve more smoothies, this recipe is really easy to double.
Would I make this again? I’ve made this smoothie so many times!

    I think I’m going to need a couple of these after all the cookies I’ve been eating lately hehe ;–) But it sounds so so good that I don’t think I’d mind!
    Happy New Year Tessa! I hope you had a wonderful beginning of the year! xx

    this looks great, can it be a meal supplement while trying to kick off a diet

      This smoothie is great in the morning but since there’s not really any protein in it I don’t think it could be a meal supplement. I’m also not a dietician so I’m certainly no expert on meal supplements.

    This may be a silly question – but can you use a regular blender? I don’t have a vitamix so I thought I would ask :-)

      Totally! That’s why I wrote “Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until liquified and smooth but still cold” in the recipe directions because a regular blender may take longer to liquify everything but you want to make sure you don’t blend so long that everything heats up.
