Green Smoothie

Hello, March!! What an exciting time of year. Spring is almost here, the birds are migrating back from their winter hiatus, flowers are starting to bloom, it’s National Nutrition Month, and, of course, who could forget that St. Patty’s Day is right around the corner.

March is also a good time to focus in again on your health. That’s why I reach for my favorite green smoothie. It’s chock full of fruits and vegetables (notice I make the smoothie with the skin on both the cucumber and pear to get the most fiber and nutrients out of them), with a bit of creaminess from the almond milk and some nuttiness from the seeds. All in all, it creates a drink that’s high in nutrients, fiber, calcium, and omega 3s!!

Easy to make, delicious to drink, and good for your body!!

Remember: Go green, go healthy!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chopped honeydew
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

  • 1 cup chopped cucumber (skin on)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons Carrington Farm’ Milled Flax Seed

Place in blender. Make sure all the chunks and skin from vegetables is puréed completely.

Drink to your health!!
