Green Smoothies!


Now with spring here, I've been craving more refreshing smoothies in the morning and for mid-day snacks. When making green smoothies, try to include higher amounts of leafy green vegetables than fruit, and be sure to include some healthy fat (nut butter, avocado, chia seeds, hemp hearts) to help with satiety and turn off the hunger hormone ghrelin. You can also freeze cauliflower and zucchini chunks and add them into your green smoothies for extra nutrition. It's a sneaky way to easily add more vegetables into your day. Here's one of my favorite green smoothie recipes...the combo of mango and lime is one of my absolute favorites.
