This Wildflower Green Smoothie is a great beginner one when transitioning yourselves to green smoothies. It is easy to make, sweet, delicious, and even your kiddos will love this one! Chalk full of essential vitamins & minerals, it will give you lasting energy to help you get through those hectic days!
If you are love road or mountain biking, or trail races, you need to check out the Wilflower Trailfest at Snowbasin or the Wildflower Pedalfest in Morgan, UT. They are fun races for women with lots of support, massages, & super delicious snacks, lunch, & an amazing dessert bar at the end. For more information on the Wildflower races check out their link HERE.
We demoed this smoothie at the Pedalfest one year, and women kept coming back asking for the recipe. We love this Wildflower Green Smoothie because it is such a great beginner smoothie if you are new to green smoothies. The pineapple makes it taste so delicious and sweet, and the wedge of lime gives it a clean yummy finish. Leave the peel on your lime unless you don’t have high powered blender. Lemon & lime peels have what is called Limonene. It is known for promoting weight loss and preventing cancer. Its also alkaline so it can helps offset the acidity in your body. An acidic environment is not good for the body and can harbor inflammation and a host of other problems.
So if you are new to smoothies, definitely give this one a try and let us know what you think…and if you are already advanced and love making them, add this one to your list because it is a good “go-to” for those crazy days you are on the run!Print
