This super healthy smoothie gives you all the vitamin c you need to fight the colder days.

There is a sea of healthy green smoothies out there. I do quite a few and love them all so much. This one I just whipped up, attempting to clean out my vegetable bin before my weekly trip to the farmer’s market tomorrow. This smoothie is so good and so necessary. I’m fighting a losing battle against my allergies and needed a good vitamin c punch. This was perfect for lunch. Plus protein-packed, thanks to Chobani, so my muscles are thankful post workout.
- 1 cup of vanilla almond milk
- ¼ cup of vanilla Chobani
- 2 kiwis, peeled
- 10 green grapes
- 1 Apple, cored, skin on
- 1 giant handful of baby spinach leaves
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)
- 1 banana
- 10 ice cubes
- Place everything in your blender or Vitamix and blend until creamy. Pour into glasses (makes 3-4 glasses) and top with a slice of fresh kiwi.
