Dreamy Green Smoothie

Hello beautiful people! Today has been in all honesty, very rough. I am taking some much needed self care time before I have to go into work. I am hoping to discuss more of what has been going on, on Friday so until then…please enjoy this dreamy green smoothie!

It is chockfull of vitamins and nutrients with spirulina being the shining star.Spirulina is an incredible superfood that detoxifies heavy metals in the body, helps prevent cancers, lowers blood pressure, reduces cholesterol, and provides energy (Dr. Axe). It also includes vitamins A, K1, K2, B12 and iron, manganese and chromium( Dr. Axe).

Spirulina is also very easy to find at TJ Maxx or you can order it on Amazon.

PS I don’t know why the smoothies are two different shades of green in my pictures. I promise they are the same smoothie, haha!
