What I love about smoothies is the fact that you can toss almost any combination of fruit and greens in a blender and it’s bound to be tasty. Well, except for the one time I decided to get crazy and add half a head of romaine lettuce in there. My kids were not thrilled. But, speaking of my kids, they love this one….green and all. They prefer a little more of the coconut oil and honey. I prefer a little less. And as a bonus, this smoothie is naturally gluten and dairy free. Cheers!
