Simple Tasty Green Drink

Many of my clients and friends say they hate green drinks because they don’t like the taste of vegetables.  Why A green Drink?  It is a wonderful detoxification drink to get your system running smooth or to add in a lot of needed vegetables that your body craves!  Who really eats 9-11 servings of vegetables every day?  Below is a recipe for one of my favorite green drinks that I have heard rave reviews from veggie skeptics!  Try it for yourself and see!

A perfect breakfast for non-breakfast people, a great coffee substitute or an afternoon energy booster. It's also a nice option on those days when you need a reset from over-indulging the night before. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you want or have on hand. My sister loves to add Bok Choy. Change for seasonal availability.
