This green machine smoothie combines veggies and fruits to give you that kick of nutrients to help get your day started.Today I’m sharing a smoothie that Warren and I drink practically every morning. It combines the best of both worlds – veggies and fruits! I’m waking up earlier these days to workout (4:30 – 5:00 AM), so I like to prepare the smoothies the night before so they’re at the ready in the morning. If you have more time than I do in the mornings, they can be made the morning of too :)

YUM! The strawberries, pineapple, papaya, and mango that I used were frozen because a smoothie needs some sort of icy element to thicken it up. Alternatively, you can use fresh versions and previously frozen sliced bananas. Whatever you have on hand, you can make it work!
