The Best Mint Green Smoothie
If you love mint then you are going to love this green smoothie recipe. Think Girl Scout cookie taste here. I love a green smoothies and when it tastes like a thin mint I am so excited! The cold of the ice, the green of the avocado and the mint flavor will have you doing the happy dance.
I used to be the “Cookie Mom” in girl scouts. That was the year I put on 10 pounds because I kept going into my garage where are the cookies were stored and ate way to many thin mints. I wound up owing the troop over $100 dollars. Needles to say that was my only year as troop cookie mom. Thank goodness!
Coconut Water is Natures Gatorade
Coconut water is very hydrating for the bod and contains five essential electrolytes that are present in the human body.
Coconut oil is an absolute favorite of mine. If you want shiny hair then you will love this blog post showing you how I use coconut oil to condition my hair.
Cocoa Nibs Are Natures “Chocolate” Gift
They are actually the actually cocoa bean roasted and broken into tiny pieces. They are crunchy and full of antioxidants, fiber, magnesium and potassium. Who knew!
When you start adding smoothies into your diet the body will start to do some much-needed spring-cleaning. The fiber in the fruit and veggies acts like a broom and starts to clear out some of the toxic debris that have been accumulating. Just by adding in one smoothie a day your body can gently jump start mild detoxing.
Who Wants More Energy?
Another benefit of green smoothies is more energy. By taking in more vitamins and minerals you are feeding the body nutrition. When you feed the body whole food nutrition it will use it and your energy levels will increase.
I hope you are seeing the benefits of adding green smoothies to your daily weight loss and health tool box. You body will be thanking you.
