My Morning Green Smoothie

Since I've been in a green smoothie mood... I decided to post my quick on the go, energy, delicious smoothie recipe. This  is a very basic green smoothie and can be adjusted in anyway to make your own version of a green smoothie.

I've written the recipe out so it's easy to follow and understand. There are so many reasons why you should give a green smoothie a go!! Green smoothies are fun and a great way to start the morning as spinach/kale are really really good for you and both have protein. So does the greek yogurt! :) 

Bananas are best in the morning as they are great source of energy and help prevent muscle cramps. Cinnamon isn't just DELICIOUS!!!! But it's so good for your body as it lowers blood sugar and it's great for lowering your cholesterol. So for those who have a high cholesterol, cinnamon is perfect for you!

Just a few ingredients blended together in your blender can make a perfect combination to kick start your day. Just five ingredients and you've got a drink that doesn't just taste scrumptious but so so good for you.

Enjoy!!
