Sassy Green Smoothie
Total prep time: 5 - 10 minutes | Yield: 2 - 3 servings
This is a light, slightly sweet smoothie that's easy on the digestive system. It's perfect for when you want some get-up-and-go without anything weighing you down. This recipe calls for...bone broth. The spices are good for balancing blood sugar, improving digestion, weight loss, eye health, fighting fungal and bacterial infection, heart health, regulating cholesterol, and reducing inflammation. If you need more grounding energy and strength, you could substitute a nut or seed butter for the coconut butter in this recipe.
This smoothie makes a great breakfast when your appetite is light and you don't want something heavy in your system. It also makes an ideal snack for late afternoon, when you're hungry and want something to tide you over till dinner, but don't want to ruin your appetite. In other words, it's a great blood sugar balancer that can satisfy your hunger, get some greens into your body, and keep you feeling light and energized. Drink this up and you'll still feel primed for the day's adventures!
