California Green Smoothie

This California Green Smoothie is the best way to start your day!

Confession: I have never had a green smoothie before today. *wince* I know they’re popular and I had heard about all the nutritional benefits, but seriously – I didn’t know they would taste THIS good!

Had I known, I would have jumped on the bandwagon much sooner!

This California Green Smoothie is packed with fresh, nutrient-rich produce and nuts all easily available in our Golden State.

The flavor is crisp and pure, and surely I don’t need to tell you how vivid the colors are…

Not only is it gorgeous and delicious, but it’s about the easiest thing.  I promise! 

Here’s what you’ll need:

California Green Smoothie Ingredients List

Place it all in a blender and puree until smooth and luscious and pour over ice.

Just in case you are wondering (or freaked out about the color), this smoothie does not have a strong spinach taste. The pear and apple are the dominant flavors and the almond milk adds a slight sweetness. So yummy!

Once you’ve tried our California Green Smoothie, we’re pretty sure you’ll be on the smoothie bandwagon. Mix things up with our colorful Unicorn Smoothie!
