Health and Fitness: Green Machine

Recently I’ve been obsessed with a green smoothie. Yes, you read that right! IT’S GREEN! I don’t know if it’s the color or the taste, but this smoothie has got me going bananas! It honestly takes a few minutes to make and it’s super healthy for you! The green smoothie has many great benefits including weight loss, digestive health, and it even helps support the immune system. After a couple of weeks you’ll have glowing skin, hair, nails, even eyes get brighter! Who doesn’t want that? The only things you need is a blender and the following ingredients:

  •             ½ cup of frozen mango
  •       ½ cup of frozen peaches
  •       1-2 fresh or frozen banana
  •       Handful of spinach
  •       Water
  •             Ice (optional)

All you need to do is all the fruit and washed spinach into your blender. Fill the blender up with enough water for the blender to blend, a few ice cubes if you like your smoothies super thick, blend, pour, and enjoy your super healthy beneficial smoothie! You can also substitute the mango and peaches for any other frozen fruit of your choice! This is one of the most inexpensive, filling snacks out there! So go grab your blender and make your glowing green smoothie! bone app├ętit!
