So Fresh, So Green Smoothie

Jackie Winkler

Living in downtown Chicago, there is never a shortage of juice and smoothie places to try. I absolutely love going to new, healthy restaurants and discovering something new.

One of my favorite workout places is a wonderful spin class located in River North in downtown Chicago. In addition, they have a smoothie/juice/bowl stand right when you walk in. It is so convenient to grab a quick, healthy smoothie on your way out of your workout class. This totally makes my day. GRAZE is the smoothie shop, and they take price in crafting the highest quality, energy boosting smoothies and Acai bowls for on-the go people. 

So, this recipe is inspired after having one of their very healthy smoothies. I really take pride in treating my body right, especially after a workout and I hope you will too! 

You probably don’t juice everyday (I definitely don’t), so when I do I want to make it count !Get in all that good stuff, all those vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients in a nice BIG glass of green juice.
