30 Healthy Smoothie Recipes

Here are some great smoothie recipes to start out your morning. Since I did the detox, I sampled several that I would never have considered trying a month ago. These two are really good and offer some variety to your growing list of smoothie recipes.

My goal? To go an entire month without drinking the same one.

Bon Appetit!
