Healthy, Vegan, and Paleo Smoothies, Part I

Posted by

Smoothies are a great snack or breakfast… if you get the ingredients right!  Beware of store bought smoothies though, as they may try to sell you on health factor, when it really falls short on nutrition value.  That’s why I’ve been collecting a list of great healthy smoothies to try out at home, where you can trust where your ingredients are coming from.  Here they are, with ingredients ranging from bananas to kale to chocolates!
