(Recipe and “4 Smoothie Health Facts” part of the 30 Day Smoothie Challenge by Young and Raw)

  • 2 Handfuls of Greens (I used Spinach)
  • 1 Apple, Cored (I used Granny Smith)
  • 1 Cup Frozen Blueberries
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk, Coconut Milk or Water (I used Almond Milk)
  • (I added 1/2 tbsp of Chia Seeds)
  • (I added 1/2 tbsp of Wheatgrass Powder)

Yummy. I drank all of it (2 glasses). Stomach a bit heavy at the beginning of yoga class. I liked the almond milk but will try coconut water next time out of interest. My friend added some banana and said it was delicious!
