Greenin – a nutrient packed hydration booster

Last night I went to a concert and woke up this morning feeling….a little drained.

What better way to perk up than a green smoothie?!

I knew I needed some cucumber to get some hydration back, so I went from there.

Kiwis are a great source of fiber and spinach is a great source of protein. Lastly, I added the yogurt to replenish the “good” bacteria I lost last night (probiotics for the win!).

It’s called….

  • A splash of water (coconut or filtered) to thin it out.
