The Real Deal: A Green Smoothie

Smoothies are the new fast food! But they’ve gotta be made with intention. That means low-glycemic fruit, healthy fats and mostly greens. I’m teaming up with @globalsmoothieday to celebrate the new (healthy) fast food – the green smoothie! The #globalsmoothieday mission is to raise awareness of whole food blended nutrition in a way that’s easy and FUN. Join us on October 3rd for Global Smoothie Day; and in the meantime, enjoy this delicious, fatty, healthy green smoothie. Click here to view PDF version.
