A green smoothie can make an amazingly nutrient-dense meal and is great way to start your day off with some greens. Just consider a large smoothie to be a full meal not a snack.  And don’t gulp it down too fast. It takes our bodies 20 minutes to recognize that you are full and satisfied!

This smoothie recipe is perfect for a pre or post-workout meal with a balanced combination of carbohydrates and protein. This plus the healthy fats and fiber will keep you feeling fuller longer.

Bonus: It’s super high in fiber and antioxidants too- containing approximately 73% of your Vitamin A, 45 % of your Vitamin C, and almost 1/2 of your fiber percentage daily requirements.
