Green Smoothies

I’ve tried my first green smoothie. The recipe I experimented with tasted okay. I plan to experiment with different veggies and fruit combinations for my taste. These smoothies are going to give me the daily recommended servings for fruits and veggies. A couple of additions to my rendition of the smoothies are protein and fiber. Adding the protein and 3 tablespoons of fiber (will vary depending on fiber content in vegetables) will turn the smoothie into a meal replacement. This is just another healthy eating tip added to my healthy eating lifestyle.

Blend on low speed adding each item individually: romaine lettuce, parsley, cilantro, spinach, pear, apple, watermelon, and lemon
