It’s officially Wu Haus Smoothie Week! I decided this week would be a good week to share one new smoothie recipe each day through Friday. I know many of you, like me, are starting the new year off with a bang and want to use this month to set the foundation for healthy habits moving forward. What better way to do that than with your morning smoothie! There will be a good mix of smoothie and smoothie bowl options, so I hope you will find at least a couple that you love.
First up, the Drink-Your-Greens Smoothie! Packed with cleansing fruits, veggies and herbs, this smoothie will also provide you with a punch of protein and fiber. I love starting my day with this one. It’s light and bright and gives me the jump start I need in the morning. Enjoy!
