Morning Green Smoothie

I love this smoothie! It's so refreshing! I rotate the leafy greens and fruit on a weekly basis. Even if I'm eating apples or pears weekly, I make sure they're a different variety of pears and apples, so that I get a combination of nutrients each week. 
What's great about this smoothie is that kids like it too! If they're introduced to it at an early age, you won't have problems with them enjoying their greens.
