I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

This is my favorite green smoothie recipe.

I know, I know… It doesn’t look very appealing. Instead of a pretty pink or purple color, it’s green! When I brought one to my husband the very first time I made one for him, his reaction was priceless. He had the most disgusted look on his face and exclaimed, “What is that?!” After some convincing, he decided to give it a try. “MMMMM,” he said. I must admit, green smoothies can be pretty scary. I have also had my fair share of green smoothies that tasted horrible.

But now I have my go-to green smoothie recipe and, even on my busiest day, I’ll take just 5 minutes to blend one of these up. I always feel great afterward, too. It might be psychological because of all of the nutritious fruits and vegetables I see myself add to the smoothie, or maybe I feel better because it actually is really healthy for you. (Or maybe it’s a little of both…)
