How to make the best green smoothie EVER!

green smoothie recipe

Getting our daily dose of veggies has never been so easy! Fruit smoothies are easy to make and nourish the body with essential nutrients. I have one recipe that I keep coming back to, not only for its benefits, but it’s delicious taste!

I have tried my share of smoothies, and some of them are a little to bland for my taste. I wanted to share with you guys my tricks to the perfect smoothie and also one of my favorite recipes! Check out my video below for a quick how-to using my favorite smoothie recipe.

The rules of the perfect smoothie

Use frozen fruit
Using frozen fruit eliminates ice, therefore making your smoothie richer and tastier!
Don’t add ice
Adding ice will water the smoothie and make it taste bland. The richer the smoothie, the tastier it will be!
Don’t add sugar
The purpose of a smoothie is to nourish your body! It’s supposed to be healthy. Never add sugar, resist the urge!
Don’t add milk
This is not a milkshake, it’s a healthy fruit treat! By adding milk, you are adding calories that are not necessary. For a thicker smoothie, just add bananas.

Add spinach
Spinach is a must in smoothies, it’s loaded with vitamins and you won’t even taste it!

Green smoothie recipe:

Dessert inspired Lip Balms

I love cupcakes! Most of our lip balm flavors are inspired by the most delicious and loved desserts.

This week we want to highlight Pink Lemonade lip balm and cupcake!

If you have a sweet tooth and happen to have your lip balm handy, just let it guide you to your dessert.

We are exited to have Baked by Melissa‘s Pink lemonade cupcake to go with our Pink Lemonade Lip balm.

They are both juicy-tart lemony-lime blended with the perfect mix of sugary sweetness. YUM!

My favorite cupcake

Once upon a time, I used to wonder around looking for the perfect sweet treat, that is until I found the love of my life…yes a cupcake called dark chocolate. When you get a sweet tooth there’s nothing better than to know the right dessert to comfort you, and what do I do when it happens? Race over to Sprinkles Cupcakes NY where I can order a cupcake over the phone and have it delivered curbside! For this reason I would like to give a shout-out to Sprinkles! Thank you for making it so easy to satisfy my sweet tooth!

Please share your faves, now that I have shared mine.
