Go green! Beat Corona
Start drinking this green smoothie every morning to stay healthy during this crazy time we're living in! In all seriousness, please make sure you're taking care of yourself by eating healthy to keep your body strong. The power of food is real and by eating the right foods you'll strengthen your immune system and overall health.
I've never been super into green smoothies or juices, but this particular green smoothie that I created is SO refreshing and has just the right combination of flavors, not too sweet or bitter, it's truly the perfect combo.
I've been doing my best to drink this each morning and the days that I do I feel SO good and my skin is glowing! I love that it's mostly veggies with only green grapes as the fruit, it's important to keep the fruit content low in smoothies otherwise there's too much sugar.
Go green, beat corona!
