My Fabulously Healthy Super Green Travel Smoothie or Green Juice. Just what you need to refresh your Road trip!
Those that know me, know I love to eat healthy, but I was never a fan of Liquid Breakfast…Until recently that is, when I had an “aha moment” After tasting the yummiest green smoothie ever…So much so I decided to make some for our Road trip on the bank holiday weekend! I call it My Super Green Travel Smoothie.
Under normal circumstances I Love Smoothies, well I did love the full cream, sugar filled, full of all the wrong ingredients, lick off your milk tashe type of smoothies. 😃 Yet this One beat them all hands down and weaned me off them. (Image didn’t do it justice!)
Today, I can say in all honesty that I am a big fan of healthy esp. green smoothies. I have for the last week plus had a Super green smoothie every day for breakfast and I feel like I am on some kind of “Beetlejuice.” 😊 Seriously you can’t make this up. I feel like I got wings. Like I had the best massage, sauna and power nap wrapped in one. It is almost orgasmic…Oops can I say that?
I know your next Spa visit may be months away, to get the same feel good factor, try this smoothie.
My children too have come to appreciate the kick of energy they get every morning that takes us right thru lunch time. I usually take mine post workout…Because I start the day with a warm Lemon water and give it at least 30-45 minutes to do its thing! I love the way my skin looks and feels two weeks into the having this home made energy drink.I love the way my skin looks and feels two weeks into having this home made energy drink.Click To Tweet
I also make one for my lunch alongside my usual Fruits Infused water. A girl can never have too much Vitamin C! 😉 Or can she???
There are numerous recipes out there, but the ones I like the most, my favorite Super cleansing and filling Green Smoothies or juices are below!
Next time you are taking a long road trip, whip out your Nutri-bullet or juicer and whip up a healthy smoothie or juice. (Power snack on speed.) Place it in your cooler bag with lots of Ice to lock in the freshness and prevent fermentation. And enjoy a healthy snack/drink when you take a service break or scenic Insta-worthy stop over

Spirulina is a super food proven to give you the highest immunity described below:
