I don’t know about all of you, but I don’t have a problem consuming fruit. So when I challenged myself to a smoothie a day in January, it was all about the greens.  I NEED more green in my life! This Strawberry Green Smoothie Recipe is a great way to throw in some fruit, some green, and blend it on up!

Strawberry Green Smoothie Recipe, great way to start your day in a healthy way.

I’ve been doing some investigating, and though a lot of people like to add in protein powder, I like to keep mine more to fresh ingredients. I get the protein from the yogurt, and creaminess from almond milk and avocado. Have you tried an avocado in your smoothie?? YUM!  I also love the flavor of coconut oil.

If your kids are like mine, they often turn up their noses as the green stuff, but if I let them know it’s packed with strawberries, and ask them to give it a chance, they comply fairly well, and get over their initial thoughts.
