Green Smoothie

This veggie smoothie is my new favorite way to start a day, so refreshing, hydrating, and an amazing way to get the proper dose of greens into the system. I used to be a bit afraid of putting too many veggies in smoothies and juices and started this one with some mango and orange juice added but once I tried skipping all the fruit actually realized this version is waaay fresher. You can easily make it as a juice as well, although blender does preserve the fibre of the veggies so it is a bit more nutritious, but packed with vitamins even as a juice for sure.
