I won't lie. I hate eating my vegetables. My kid eats more veggies than I do. Now and then I crave a salad but that's about it. I know I should eat more of them, especially now when we are stuck at home and I see all the other junk I'm consuming. But I just don't love the taste of veggies.
Well, now that I have a Vitamix I'm playing around with different recipes to creating some healthy options that give me the good stuff I need! This Green Smoothie really is tasty. I played with it a bit to make sure I didn't have too many fruits but I had enough to make it taste good. I landed on this recipe. Obviously, if you want more sweetness, add more fruit!
