My Go-To Green Smoothie

It’s that time of year again when we get back into our schedules after the summer.  For me, that means starting my fitness routine again. I took the summer off but now with local fitness classes starting back up, I’m forced to get back into the game!! and I feel better already….more energy, improved mood according to my hubby 🙂 and I’m overall happier.

My friend Bonnie and I just finished a back / bicep workout and I thought I would share one of my favorite smoothie recipes.  We drink a lot of smoothies in my house and I always have baggies in the freezer ready to blend and go.   Today I am using fresh kale because I still have quite a bit in my garden but you could also use spinach.  It’s a great way to use up your extra garden greens.
