Green Smoothies are so rich, I swear. They give you this satiated feeling for hours. And so so refreshing. This smoothie that I made was from one of the recipes of my forever favorite Chef Jamie Oliver. Added a couple of additional ingredients to add more nutrients and richness. It has fresh apple juice, baby spinach, and banana. I additionally added homemade almond butter (for the luxurious tinge), flax seeds, chia seeds, spinach and ginger juice. And woah. This for sure has now become my magic potion for instant energy!
Now lets get down to the benefits it has to offer through its powerhouse ingredients!
1. Almond Butter
