This delicious spiced apple green smoothie is the perfect nutrient-packed super drink to start off your week. To be totally honest, it took me quite a while to warm up to green smoothies, mostly because the thought of kale or spinach in a smoothie just sounded plain gross. After trying out a few (some were pretty disgusting!), I found some easy green smoothie recipes I actually like because they taste good. You can’t taste the spinach at all! The natural sugar from the apples and banana, as well as some from the coconut milk, means this smoothie tastes sweet without the need for additional sweeteners. Just pop those banana slices in your freezer while getting ready for work so they will be ready just in time before you have to go.
