Goddess Green Breakfast Smoothie

by Heather Earl

I generally have an aversion to drinking something that looks like Shrek puked up, but this drink rocks.  I ordered a smoothie at Whole Foods and when my daughter saw the look on my face when I saw the color, she said “try it Mom, could be life changing”.  I love that girl and her attitude.  It was in fact life changing (at least for the time being) because now I am concocting all sorts of green goodness in my Vitamix.  The kids are even drinking them…..so yes life has changed from sweet fruit smoothies to healthy veg based goodness.
