From limes and avocados to apples and kiwi—there's an abundance of fresh green produce that can be used to create a hearty (and healthy!) smoothie. Try one of these quick recipes for a quick snack or breakfast on-the-go. Sneaking fruits and vegetables into food isn't a new concept. In fact, it's a great way to consume essential nutrients you need but might not otherwise get. However, few of us want to sip on a smoothie that tastes like grass. Fortunately, the addition of fruit, extracts, juice, and even nut butters easily masks the bitter flavor of greens. Making your own green smoothie also ensures you limit—or avoid—added sugar. Fast and fresh—these green smoothies are a great way to get your daily serving of fruits and veggies.
