Green Tropical Smoothie
I try and start my mornings off with at least 2-3 servings of fruits and veggies. Usually the easiest way to do this is to throw together a big green smoothie- and recently I have been stuck on this one! It has a orang-y tropical feel packed with 2 servings of leafy greens + bonus omega-3s! Just a smoothie tip: I keep all my smoothie ingredients but citrus frozen so that I don't have to use ice- which I feel waters it down a bit.
If you're trying to change one thing about your day, consider subbing in this smoothie with a side of whole-grain oatmeal or cereal in the morning to start your day off healthy and refreshed!
Put all ingredients in blender, with unfrozen ingredients at the bottom toward the blade and heaviest frozen ingredients at the top (to force the ingredients down toward the blade)
Blend until smooth, adding almond milk as needed
1/2 peeled orange
