This Breakfast Will Give You Tons of Energy

This refreshing green smoothie is both plant and fruit based.  It can be eaten on its own or paired with protein and fat to create a complete meal. We love it with a handful of almonds or a couple of scrambled eggs. This healthy smoothie is a great way to start your day or follow up an intense workout.
