Green Smoothie Challenge Week 2: Recipes

photoGridImage

It’s week two of the green smoothie challenge and I am really enjoying it. I am definitely eating more greens and fruit than I do usually during the winter. Every morning, I make a mason jar of green goodness and bring it to work with me or enjoy while lounging at home. What’s even better about this is that I am trying different combinations of fruit and  green vegetables that I haven’t tried before. If you haven’t had a chance, check out simple green smoothie’s website.
