This is a favorite of mine when you're craving something sweet, tart, and filling. This is also a great way to easy into add more green plant-based foods into your diet. If you're used to all fruit smoothies or juices that add sugar, this will help you transition off the less healthy options like the ones just mentioned without your taste buds feeling cheated. If you're used to green smoothies, you can cut back on the fruit and add more greens.
