When you’re craving a satisfying treat but want to keep your health in mind, a smoothie is an excellent way to curve that sweet tooth while keeping your calories in check. It is recommended to consume a MINIMUM of five servings of fruits and vegetables every day and I know myself how difficult that can be.  When I need an extra boost of fruits and vegetables, I add one of these delicious smoothie recipes into my meal plan as a healthy snack.

 

Packed full of vitamin C, potassium and fiber is one of my all-time favorite smoothie recipes:
