This smoothie is a wonderful way to start the day healthy. It provides lots of vitamins, anti-oxidants, minerals, and fiber which makes you feel full longer. I am not a big breakfast fan myself but this smoothie has convinced even me.
You can also enjoy this smoothie as healthy snack anytime during a hot summer day. A guilt-free, healthy, and refreshing snack to cool down a bit.
