We’re always being told to “eat your greens” but quite honestly, we like drinking ours in a delicious smoothie.
This is a great way to make sure you get those nutrient-rich greens for a well-balanced diet. Adding in an apple and coconut water makes this more of a treat while getting the many health benefits of leafy greens. Blend this up as your breakfast or a mid-day snack.
