I am sharing two of my favorite green smoothie recipes for summer. I found these recipes while doing the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge in July offered by Jen and Jadah of Simple Green Smoothies. They offer these live challenges four times a year, where the goal is to drink at least one green smoothie a day for 30 days. They email you every Thursday with a shopping list and recipes to help you prepare for the week. The next live challenge is in October, sign up here.
I love green smoothies because they are an easy way to incorporate healthy foods into your diet. Drinking one a day really can be so beneficial for your health by boosting your energy and your immune system among other things. I started drinking them back in college and regularly include them in my diet because what you put in your body is so important. If you’re new to making green smoothies, I highly recommend checking out Jen and Jadah’s site, they have a lot of tips and tricks for newbies. Let me know if you give these a try!
