Best Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

Perfecting a green smoothie takes work. The right combination and ratio of fruit to veg is key to a well balanced smoothie. The last thing I need is a massive sugar rush first thing in the morning. I like to add chia gel to my smoothies because it’s high protein, contains load of fiber and nutrients and keeps my energy up for workouts. If you have yet to make hemp milk, I encourage you to give it a shot. It’s so stinking easy.

Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are a great way to get nutrient dense foods into little mouths without too much trouble. Ava and I shared this smoothie this morning on our dog walk.  This smoothie makes the perfect pre ride meal or a nutritious start to any day.
