My tower garden is exploding with fresh lettuces, basil, chard, and kale. In addition to making salad jars for lunches, I've been adding greens into my smoothies to make use of them this Spring.
Here's an easy recipe for a sweet greens smoothie. You could swap mango for pineapple or swiss chard for kale depending on what you have at home.
Green Mango Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks (or a handful)
3 or 4 leaves of swiss chard, stems removed
1 scoop JuicePlus+ Complete French Vanilla

I teach 20+ barre or dance classes 6 days a week and often have extra jobs dancing on the weekends, so as you can imagine, I'm hungry a lot and I need a lot of energy to keep going with a smile on my face.
Adding JuicePlus+ products into my life has been a life saver because it keeps my immune system strong and gives me a ton energy without having to spend a lot of time planning my meals. People always ask me how I keep going with my schedule. The main reason is that I truly love being a teacher and being active, but the other reason is that I made these products a priority so I could keep doing the things that I love.
Here's one of my favorite smoothies. I often make this one in the afternoons when I need a fast and satisfying pick-me-up.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake
1 scoop JuicePlus+ Complete Dutch Chocolate mix
1 cup unsweetened vanilla cashew milk
1 frozen banana
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Blend ingredients in a blender until smooth. Enjoy!
