How can you not think of the colour green in December? From Christmas Trees to Christmas Wreaths the colour green is everywhere. So it would only make sense to create a green smoothie for December. Automatically when I think of fruits and vegetables and the colour green I think of leafy greens. Of course, leafy greens are not the only green vegetable on the planet, but they hands down one of the best. Broccoli, peas, beans, celery, peppers, cucumbers, brussel sprouts are also great green vegetables. We also can’t forget about the amazing green fruits that we have, grapes, apples, pears, kiwi, lime and the awesome avocado.
Green fruits and vegetables are a FAV of mine and they should be for you and your family. They are loaded with Fiber, Antioxidants and Vitamins. Fiber helps to improve the digestive system, antioxidants help protect against free radicals and boost the immune system. Vitamins A, B, C, E and K found in green fruits and vegetables protect bones, prevent inflammation, maintain healthy skin and eyes and promote heart health. This is a great way for your kids to practice their ABC’s.
This months smoothie is inspired by one of the most popular Christmas characters. Your kids might not like the character, but I guarantee you your kids with love this green smoothie.
