Any smoothie with vegetables is pretty tasty and this one is no exception. Some very different ingredients make this delicious and nutrient filled smoothie a satisfying mid-day meal.
Its also easy to turn this vegetable smoothie treat into even more of a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
