Fresh Green Smoothie Recipe

One of my goals this year is to incorporate more greens into my diet, and smoothies are a quick and tasty way to get them in. It goes without saying that greens are good for overall health because they're chock full of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, but eating your greens can also do wonders for your skin as they help the body detoxify and rid itself of free radicals that can lead to inflammation.

What You'll Need:

1 cup raw spinach
1/2 Anjou pear or apple
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/2-1 in piece fresh ginger, to taste
2-3 fresh parsley sprigs
juice of 1/2 lime 
1/3 cup cold filtered water


Toss all ingredients into a high-speed blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy! It's that simple! 

What are some of your favorite smoothie recipes?
