Granny Greens Smoothie

grannygreensmoothieI like to start each workday with a smoothie or fresh squeezed  juice.  It gives me that extra boost of energy and guarantees that I get my fruits and vegetables in for the day.

One morning I had this gorgeous Granny Smith apple just sitting near my blender all alone. I cored and sliced the poor Granny.  I blended her with a little lime juice, an orange, frozen mango, almond milk, and spinach.  And Granny Greens was born!
