Green Smoothies!

I've been on a health kick lately. With the upcoming spring, I am craving fresh veggies and fruits. I make this smoothie everyday to get enough green leafy vegetables, and it tastes great! A green smoothie can be made with anything, really. Just use whatever fruits you like, and add a large bunch of some dark, leafy greens. Herbs, like basil and parsley, are also good.
In addition to fruits and veggies, I also added chia seeds to boost its protein and omega-3's. Other healthy additions are flax seeds, nuts, goji berries, etc.
