one of the biggest requests i’ve received is to share green smoothie recipes with simpler and fewer ingredients. offtta, was that a relief for me and my whole foods grocery bill.

i am loving this ‘simpler’ approach to recipes, and have actually decided to make this simple, 5 {ish) ingredient recipe format my new standard.

that’s right, i am going to do my very best to make my green smoothie and real food recipes all simple 5 ingredient recipes that can be purchased from local grocery stores or farmers markets. and because i know you’ll be craving more, my new online training programs, launching this fall, will also have 50+ simple, 5 ingredient recipes.

so let’s get this 5 ingredient recipe party started with this simple, creamy green smoothie.
