This Glowing Green Smoothie (GGS) should be a daily staple.  It features lots of greens, and fruit to help balance that “green” taste.  The lemon gives cleansing benefits in addition to the greens.  Mix and match greens with fruit to your liking, or what produce you must use up!  Ideally it’s 2 types of greens with 2-3 types of fruits plus lemon. I personally don’t like celery in it (too strong of a flavor for me), so I leave it out.  If I’m trying to detox, I’ll add some parsley or cilantro, or both and use more banana or even some dates to sweeten it up. I love mixing up the greens & fruit, and sometimes using coconut water instead of filtered water. :) They beautiful thing about the GGS is the idea is to drink a quart or so of green smoothie per day and easily get more than the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables! Try it Blender Babes!  Be sure to join our community for more delicious smoothie recipes.
