Whole 30 Green Smoothie

fullsizeoutput_102c

First of all, I know what you’re thinking… “A green smoothie…in January? When it’s really cold outside?”

I know, I know! But if you’ve been like me at all then you’ve had a sore throat, a cough, a sneeze, and your nose won’t stop running. Are you like that at all?

Second of all, are you doing the January Whole 30? Even if you aren’t, this smoothie is still perfect for you because it contains WHOLE FOODS. No weird protein powders and no strange ingredients.

This smoothie will leave your throat feeling better, will meet your Whole 30 requirements, and will leave you feeling energized all morning.
