I'm Hooked...

Yes, you heard me!  I am completely hooked on my morning Green Smoothie!  I am now one of those people who craves my morning smoothie.

Who would have thought this day would come?  Not me!  The green drink used to give me the shivers just thinking about it.  So what made me go from disgust to love?  Well, I finally found the perfect combination of fruits and veggies!  And let me tell you even Derek and my mom said this smoothie wasn't bad!

Check it out! 

Fall in Love "Green Smoothie"

1/2 Mango - Skin Removed 
1/2 Banana
1/3 - 1/2 Cup Orange Juice ( I like Simply Orange Calcium and Vitamin D) 
1.5-2 Cups Cold Filtered Water (more or less depedning on how thick you like your smoothies) 
1/2 Bag of Spinach 
1 huge handful baby kale 
Honey to taste - if you like a sweeter smoothie
Ice as needed 

1- Add water and OJ in the blender along with kale and spinach.  Blend until smooth. 
2- Add in your Banana mango and honey (if using) and blend again till smooth. 

** I usually make my Green Smoothie the night before and place it in the fridge to chill overnight.  If using the ice you would add it at the end and blend till smooth.
