Kale! Spinach! and Flax! SMOOTHIE yummy!

A friend of mine suggested that I try green smoothies in the morning to switch it up from juicing. I tried it and love it and it has been my breakfast for a few weeks now! This is going to be a typical cookng recipe where you can put in any variation of ingredients to make it your own. What I'll share is my favorite base shake to which you can change out the fruit or the greens. Yes, the smoothie green from green leafy veggies.  Don't worry because you won't even taste them! You get the nutrients from the fresh ingredients but also the fiber! I like using frozen fruit because it makes the shake nice and cold! I still love fresh pressed juices but have them later in the day. I've been feeling so great and even losing a little off the waistline since it is low carb!
