I discovered, The Oh She Glows Cookbook while reading an article from BambooCoreFiteness.com on favorite cookbooks. The Oh She Glows Cookbook Green Smoothie on page 59 sounded like just what I needed to give me a boost through the end of a long winter and set me on the road to a healthy and glowing spring. I have to say, when I tried this green smoothie, I felt immediately energized and was excited to power through the rest of my day.
It tastes good, is very refreshing and also easy to make – see printable recipe below. Just pop all of the ingredients into a blender and give a whirl – I use my NutriNinja tall cup and then I can just screw the drinking cap on and go.
This is my favorite smoothie of the week. Share any smoothies that you like and that give you a power boost in the comments section below. This one is timely – St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner.
