17 Green Smoothies That Make Sure You Get Your Veggies
Breakfast, lunch, dinner — heck, even dessert. As far as we're concerned, there's really no bad time to have a smoothie. Though the classic combo of milk, yogurt, and nut butter proves that simple is delicious, we love how nutrient-rich a smoothie can be, especially when it comes to veggies. Whether it's spinach, kale, or broccoli, these smoothies put green veggies first. Best part is, none of them taste like there is a single piece of produce in the glass.
