Green C Machine Smoothie
Smoothies are a quick, on the go meal and can be a great way to add extra nutrients and superfoods into your diet.
BUT, there are a few things to consider to make them work best for you, and give lost lasting energy so that you can power through your to do list. You don’t want it to work against you, leaving you tired and hangry just a couple hours later.
There can be a lot of room for that nutritious smoothie to turn into something that resembles a milkshake, even with your best intentions of making a nutritious meal.
So if you’re hungry after only a couple of hours, or your smoothie is making you bloated, those are signs you may want to rethink your smoothie game.

Green smoothies are a great way to add extra vegetables but, I don’t know know about you, but I don’t want my green smoothies to taste like a liquid salad.
Most juice shops will highlight their green smoothies but the ingredient list is mostly fruit to mask the bitter taste of the greens.
This tart, tangy and refreshing Green C Machine smoothie does have a little fruit but it’s also packed with the amount of greens you really want in a green smoothie and full of nutrients!
This smoothie is FULL of vitamin C. Kiwi, lime, kale and pineapple are all rich in vitamin C. Did you know a kiwi has more vitamin C than an orange? Yep, and a lower glycemic index.
By using the zest as well as the whole flesh of the lime, you get more antioxidants, fiber and flavor in your smoothie. If the smoothie still tastes a little green for your liking, add some extra lime for a little tartness that will cut through the bitter kale.
