Our green smoothie bowl is easy to digest, keeps you hydrated, increase your energy, high in fiber and gets your hair and skin glowing.
To save up time cutting up fruits in the morning, we always have some frozen fruits in the freezer ready to be used for a smoothie of drink. It is good to have some frozen bananas, pineapple, berries, and other fruits you like to freeze. So from the night before, cut up some fruits into bite pieces, and then put each fruits into their own ziplock bag. We use horenzo leaves that creates this vibrant coloring to the smoothie.
Horenzo, like many other green vegetables are rich in iron, that helps your red blood cells to absorb oxygen and calcium important in strengthening your bones. This green smoothie is also filled with energy giving carbohydrates, potassium, manganese, high in vitamin C, rich source of fiber, and packed with antioxidants.
