I'm not gonna lie, I wasn't always a fan of green smoothies, but slowly I started incorporating them into my life. And my awesome teacher, Laurie, showed us how to make a natural green smoothie and I've been hooked.
Michael and I drink these all day and especially after we workout as a recovery drink. I try to eat foods that I can actually pronounce the ingredients list and protein powder....not one of those. So I was excited to be eating a "protein smoothie" that you can actually pronounce.
Now for the recipe, and remember you can always tweak to how you like it.
