Four Veggie Blast Smoothie

Four-Veggie Blast Smoothie

Jessica Braider
Whatever the weather, I love making smoothies (especially fruit and veggie smoothies) for breakfast or an afternoon snack because I know that they get my family toward our daily goal of 5 – 7 servings of fruits and vegetables. This one’s a little tart but even with all those veggies, it turns out dark pink and very drinkable. Cut the tartness with the optional sweetener, if desired.
Prep Time 10 mins
