It’s green smoothie tiiiiiiime.

Then you my friend, are in for something good.

Ok, yes, I’ll admit.

A few years ago, I probably wouldn’t have been all “excited” about a smoothie. That was green. And “healthy”.

But things have changed 🙂

As I get *ahem* oh so slightly older, I’m looking for more and more ways to:

  • Maximize nutrition
  • Increase antioxidant intake
  • Get more hydration

And this Glowing Green Smoothie does just that.

Now this is a variation on the world-famous Glowing Green Smoothie by Kimberly Snyder.

She recommends the popular VitaMix blender for maximum pulverization of the greens, which makes sense, but I have yet to invest in one of those so it’s the trusted Ninja for me.

Although, even checking Ninja’s site, it looks as though they’ve really beefed up their product line!

The blender I have may be obsolete 🙂

Well, Christmas is coming…

I hope you try the green smoothie – and like it enough to have it a couple times a week 🙂
