Green V8 Smoothie

green v8 smoothie 1

This smoothie recipe is extremely similar in taste to V8.  The only difference is that it’s green!  Well, that and it’s completely homemade, so there’s no chance of preservatives, juice made from concentrate, or anything else that is less than desirable!

The only ingredients in this is vegetables and a pinch of sea salt, so you know it’s fantastic for you, and a great way to get your veggies in!  Check out the following pins describing the health benefits of some of the vegetables in this!

You would be hard pressed to find another something with more nutrition in it than this smoothie has!  Another great thing about this, is that it’s a SMOOTHIE, which means it’s super simple to make by chucking everything in a blender, then blending till smooth!
