Green smoothie

From Farm Where Life is Good

<p>Creativity is the name of the game with green smoothies. Recipes will get you going but there is nothing better than playing a little. Green smoothies are a quick way of eating your vegetables, especially &#8220;on the go&#8221;. (I shouldn&#8217;t be promoting eating &#8220;on the go&#8221;, but life does happen sometimes&#8230;and we must adapt!)</p> <p>Lettuce or spinach are probably the best way to start the green smoothie experience, then branch out slowly from there as your taste buds expand.</p> <p>A really powerful blender is ideal.</p>
