Simple + Healthy 3 Ingredient Green Smoothie Recipe

Let me just say I’m in love with everything about this smoothie. It couldn’t be easier to make with just 3 main ingredients that you toss into a blender for two minutes, it has a whole serving of vegetables and two servings of fruit, and it’s absolutely delicious. Green smoothies are super trendy right now and I think they can be a little intimidating because the juice shops sell them by the bottle for $10 each so they seem like they’re hard to make, but trust me. I’m no chef but I can make this recipe almost every day. It’s so good and nutritious, I honestly feel healthier after only one sip. I just want everyone to make it to see how delicious it really is!
