#FlavorfulFriday – Green Smoothies

Green Smoothies from Healthy, Fit & Barefoot!

It’s that time of year when I really crave green smoothies. When it’s super hot out I just want something cool and refreshing to eat for lunch and green smoothies are a fun and easy way for me to get in my greens. Green smoothies can get quite boring though and I am always searching for new recipe ideas to change it up a bit.
