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!
