Because I'm no stranger to the overeating or overcarb-ing which cause me to feel horrible! I start fresh in the morning with this smoothie and I'm feeling much better knowing I took care of myself.
To be honest I was a green smoothie HATER, I really was! But I have turned over a new leaf, pun intended! 🙂 You can too, it's good for you!
Choose whatever apples you have on hand, use sweetener or leave it out as the apples will sweeten your smoothie. However you adjust this recipe don't remove the important stuff, like all the veggies!
The cucumber and celery make this super refreshing, I promise! 🙂
