I recently started having cravings for healthy smoothies and grapefruit. I have no idea where this came from but I'm not complaining. I've been eating a grapefruit daily for about two weeks now. I'll make a green smoothie at least every other day. 

I wanted to quickly share with you my favorite green smoothie recipe. I'm not a fan of smoothies being meal replacements but THIS smoothie definitely curbs my appetite and helps to keep my inners regular. Here goes:

2 1/2 handfuls of baby kale/baby spinach mix

1 banana (I freeze my bananas and use them when needed - don't forget to peel before freezing.

4 ice cubes (This is optional. I like my smoothies very chilled).

Ground flax seeds and ground chia seeds (add according to your personal preference - about 2 tablespoons of each is good)

2 tablespoons of RAW honey. The REAL raw honey not the Honeybee brand. It should say "raw honey on the packaging. 

1 avocado

1 cup of almond mild

3 small pieces of ginger cut from the ginger root.

2 dashes of spirulina powder

Blend it all together (I use a Blendtec blender). Blend until it has a smooth consistency. II typically let mine sit in the freezer for about 15 minutes so it can get really cold. I pour in a 20 oz mason jar - yummy!
