Way too many!I’d been holding off on trying a green smoothie for months and months now. Why? Because the thought of something sweet coming from essentially just green vegetables just didn’t sit with me.But I’ve been seeing so so many Green Smoothie posts on Instagram that just had to give it a try. Do it for the gram right?!Turns out these things work because they get their “sweet” factor from frozen sugary fruit like mango or banana. But I really wasn’t going to have that much “sugar” in one drink!Switched it out for protein powder and added frozen vegetables instead for a much better nutrient profile!
