Drinking a green smoothie every day is a fantastic way to boost your fresh vegetable and fruit intake and all the vitamin, mineral and fiber goodness your body gets from them, whether as a meal replacement or an added boost of daily greens.
The right combination of ingredients can make or break your smoothie, however, so it’s important to get the mix of vegetable and fruit, earthy and sweet right. The more you enjoy your green smoothie, the more likely you are to stick with your new routine.

Green Zing Smoothie
1 cup Spinach
1 cup Kale
2 stalks of celery (one blended in the smoothie, one as an edible spoon)
1/2 cucumber (peeled or with the skin; I prefer peeled)
1/2 cup of fresh or frozen mango chunks
1 TBSP of local honey, more or less to taste
Using a high-powered blender, blend until all ingredients are fully combined and garnish with a fresh stalk of celery, using it as an edible spoon.
