Delicious Groovy Greens Smoothie

smoothie_144112336I love green smoothies, they always make me feel so healthy inside and out. This smoothie is not only delicious it also contains many healthy fruits, vegetables, greens and nutrients.

The spinach, avocado and celery are a great combination of healthy green veggies, providing a wide array of essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other phytonutrients!

The avocado also provides monounsaturated oils for heart and skin health.

Enjoy! Love, Dr. Susan
