Green Smoothie

It can be hard to drink green smoothies. They’re not always the most pleasant tasting, but we know they’re good for us so we try our best.

Well give this recipe a try, and you may find it easier to drink to your health. It literally does not taste like a green smoothie. It tastes like blueberries and vanilla. One of my very favorites!
