Having a green smoothie is an excellent way to power up your nutrient intake for the day.  There aren’t many other quick and simple meal/snack options that come packed with green leafy vegetables, omega 3 fatty acids, fiber and antioxidants. Smoothies are also a tasty way to easily incorporate “super foods” such as chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, goji berries, wheat grass, spirulina and cacao into your diet!

This recipe uses a little bit of avocado to make it rich and creamy.  Just like a milkshake, but a whole lot healthier for you!
