Creamy Spring Green Strawberry Smoothie

I love smoothies that are light, delicious, and packed with nutrients — just like this one! Often I put most of the ingredients that I used in this smoothie into the juicer, but every once in a while (like today) I decided to blend them, and I’m so happy that I did. The strawberries add vitamin C and a sweet flavor (see more benefits of strawberries!), and avocado adds a creamy texture along with healthy anti-inflammatory fats. Finally to top off the smoothie, lots of greens are added that are packed with iron and B vitamins as well as antioxidants and other powerful nutrients. Add vegan protein, like our Reboot with Joe Protein Powder, to this smoothie to make it a good meal replacement.

Let’s get one more picture to soak in the beauty of springtime!
