Two Green Fruit Smoothie

Now that the weather is starting to warm up, we’re beginning to think of “refreshing” cooler foods. For me, smoothies come to mind. Yesterday, I concocted something new and wanted to share it with you…it was fabulous! It’s a green smoothie made with both raw baby greens and green tea. Lots of delicious fresh fruit was added, so it was refreshing, filling, and no added sweetener was needed. All the better!  Here’s the recipe followed by a YouTube link showing how to make the smoothie. Enjoy! Judi
