 What to do:

Comments:

  • If using fresh berries, you may want  to add a couple of ice cubes for a cooler smoothie
  • For those of you who aren’t a big fan of “greens” you can substitute spinach in place of kale because it offers a blander/more subtle taste yet still offers a lot of great benefits
  • The original recipe calls for water, I substitute water with coconut water because of the many health/beauty benefits it offers
