A lot of people claim that green smoothies are too complex to be included in their morning routines, but I argue the opposite! Green smoothies can be made with complexity or extremely simplistic, it is all up to you. You really do not have to rely on any recipe, as I encourage you to get creative in the kitchen and include flavors YOU love <3
Today I am sharing two flavors that I myself enjoy and I encourage you to try them out. One recipe is simple, while the other is a bit more complex. Whether you follow these recipes exactly to the T or draw inspiration from them, the fact that you will be creating a green smoothie is what makes me happy. My friend Leanne Bishara and I got together to shoot a few photos for my blog, as well as some beautiful headshots out in the Arlington Garden in Pasadena, CA. You can see more photos here.
