Green Smoothies Perfect for Summer

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.

Drinking one a day really can be so beneficial for your health by boosting your energy and your immune system among other things.
