Green Juice Smoothie in a Blender

Green Juice Smoothie in a Blender Recipe || Tastes so Good Blog
2013 was a year of overindulgence for me. I'll admit to not keeping the best eating habits, drinking too much and not exercising enough. In the weeks since Thanksgiving, all we've done at my house is eat candy, cookies, Rice Krispie treats, and drink eggnog, (and lots of coffee.) So, like everyone else in the world we needed a little detox from the countless cups of coffee and spiked eggnog, at least for the rest of the week... because who am I kidding?

  I made this quick green juice smoothie in our blender, (we don't have a juicer) you can pass the juice through a sieve if you'd like for it to be pulp free, but we didn't do that because you loose a lot of the fiber when you eliminate the pulp. We sucked these babies down in about 2 minutes, and even Emma was slurping it up. I plan to experiment with other fruit and veggie combinations, maybe a more savory combination, let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions for diverse ingredients, maybe ginger, kale, I'm also thinking of adding some flax or chia seeds. I welcome any and all help please and thank you!
