This Green Machine Smoothie is a great tasting beverage packed with healthy nourishing ingredients and your daily serving of greens!
The end of the year festivities came and went, and for most of us this meant indulging in our favorite comfort foods, party treats, cookies galore and maybe a few drinks. All the fun included! But with the start of the new year our focus have shifted, giving us the opportunity to improve ourselves. Generally speaking, eating healthy and exercising is where most of our efforts lie, and that’s a great thing given the holiday binge-eating season.
It’s safe to say that there is only so much indulgence our bodies can take before it starts to break down. This time of year (and most of the year) I try to eat super clean nourishing foods, support my body’s natural detoxification process and pack in all the vitamins and greens.
One of my favorite ways to do so is by drinking lots of green juices and smoothies. Truth is, few of us meet the daily requirement consumption of veggies, further less our greens. But with this great tasting Green Machine Smoothie you are getting all the work done and enjoying every sip of it!
I get it, green smoothies can be intimidating. But I am convinced that’s more of a psychological thing because it is seriously delicious.
Like, really really delicious!
In addition to all the green goodness coming straight from the earth, I added a scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Greens. This powerful blend contains Non-GMO marine collagen peptides combined with healthy organic greens, which provides Vitamin A, hyaluronic acid, and probiotics!
You literally feel good the minute you start sipping on this super healthy Green Machine Smoothie.
Unlike other green smoothies that are just ‘tolerable’, this Green Machine Smoothie with Vital Proteins Collagen Beauty Greens is tasty, refreshing, filling, nourishing and simply delicious!
