Green Eyed Monster Smoothie

Green juice, green smoothies, green anything in liquid form always scares me. But determined to eat more greens, I tried to make a green smoothie a few months ago. But my blender was not really high powered enough, so it left chunks of green spinach. The consistency was so gross that I couldn’t even taste it. When my new Vitamix arrived, I decided to try the smoothie again. A lot of smoothies call for ginger, but I didn’t like that. I needed just a bit of sweet. So my secret ingredient is Agave. I know a lot of people try to avoid sweeteners, so this ingredient is optional. I also use coconut water because it tastes yummy, but regular water will work as well.

Basically, the fact is we could all use more greens. I can only eat so much salad a day, so a green smoothie is an easy way to go. The color is shocking and at first, I was like, “um liquid lettuce, yuck.” But the truth is that it tastes pretty good. In fact, the ol’ hubby says he could drink it all day long.
