Great start though I’d encourage using an EGCG green tea concentrated supplement to amp up the benefits of tea… Use a consumerlab.com recommended one….. Probably the cheapest supplement I take. I’m no fan of honey or agave so I’d go easy here and probably split the spinach to include kale. Kudos on the whole med avocado. Likely would add a dak of ginger and some line. I love the recipe and would just branch of in so many directions but really recommend the Green Tea supplement called EGCG and might even add Macca… Sorry if misspelling that. Strange to say but the recipe is a tendentious foundation inspiration!
Glad you found it! Great suggestions. You can definitely try adding Maca powder. It’s a strong flavor so start with 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon. 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING!
