My favorite Green Smoothie

Early last year I began adding a green smoothie to my daily diet in addition to working out. I was hoping to drop a few stubborn pounds before my wedding. I dropped a total of 15lbs with the help of insanity! 
Yay me! Although unfortunately I gained it all back post wedding, so I'm back at it again. 
 I used to make this entirely green, but then boredom struck. Therefore, I decided to slightly change (more like sweeten) this smoothie by incorporating green apple, thanks to a cousin of mine
& now in addition to an apple I add half a banana as well. 

If you're afraid of the green veggie flavor, fear no more... the fruit takes care of that. I encourage you all to try this, its very GOOD & well it's benefits don't hurt either. My girls love it!! I usually make a big batch & store my daughters in the fridge for an after school boost.

Below is the recipe to the green blend I began with if anyone is interested.
{Pre-Wedding Green Blend}
1 leaf of Kale, handful of Parsley, 1celery rib, 1 cucumber, 10 almonds, half lemon juice, 1 tsp olive oil & water. Blend!

Current Recipe:
Half a Banana
Half a Green apple
1 leaf of Kale
 handful of Parsley
 1celery rib
 1 cucumber
10 almonds

I add the banana straight to the blend
Wash veggies & blend until smooth!!! ENJOY!!
