My family loves green smoothies for breakfast! Packed with vitamins, fiber, and natural unprocessed ingredients, green smoothies are an excellent replacement for processed, packaged fruit flavored juices in the mornings. I have included my “basic” green smoothie recipe, but feel free to add ground flax, different fruits and greens (such as kale or swiss chard) or try adding a ¼ cup of raw walnuts for variation. If you struggle with arthritis, try adding a bit of turmeric. With a good blender, the green smoothie is ready in minutes, which is a requirement for my family’s busy mornings. Have fun experimenting!
