Breakfast Drink Paleo Recipes

Mean and Green Smoothie

Green drinks are all the rage these days, but rather than invest my happiness in a strangely colored, potentially astringent $7 drink from Whole Foods unsettlingly reminiscent of freshly cut grass, I decided to take matters into my own hands. See, I wanted something creamy. I wanted something sweet, but not too sweet. I wanted something with both fruits and veggies. And lastly, I wanted a vivid, beautiful color that would lend itself well to a photograph. I knew exactly what I wanted and I knew I would be most happy with the result if I made it myself.

Well, the rest is history.
