Our family begins every. single. day. with a green smoothie.
My husband, Matt, leaves for work with his to-go bottle, I drink one while I am cooking and organizing the morning kitchen, and Otis has one in his favorite red cup.
It sets the tone for a healthy day, and is packed with nutrients and super simple to make.
