Green Glowing Smoothie

Share

  

Here is another smoothie recipe that I found on the Vitamix website.  This smoothie contains lots of good nutrients and has just about everything in it except the kitchen sink. While you can get a concentrated dose of your daily allowance of fruits and vegetables, this one is an acquired taste and not my favorite.  If you can acquire a taste for it and are able to drink one of these a day, it will be sure to detoxify your body.
