Delicious Green Smoothie Recipe ~ Nutrient Dense and Easy to Make!

A good green smoothie is worth its weight in gold, but it can be surprisingly difficult to find the right combination and balance of ingredients.

Who out there has had an attempted green smoothie end up looking and tasting like sludge? (I have.) This recipe is simple but delicious and incredibly nutrient-dense. You’ve got your electrolytes from the coconut water, protein and healthy fats from the almond butter, and the anti-inflammatory powers of pineapple. You’ve got folic acid, antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, multiple B vitamins, and minerals- both trace and macro- like iron, calcium and copper.

This smoothie gives me a huge kick of lasting energy and keeps me full for a while.
