Healthy Eating: Green Smoothie

Today I had my first green smoothie!!
If you know me, you know I can't drink anything without tasting it. And I also have a terrible gag reflex; I will throw something nasty up in a heartbeat. So it was IMPERATIVE that this be at least slightly delicious, lol.
My Mom and Dad actually drink these every day and they claim them to be delicious. Even my 2 year old will sip on a green smoothie given the chance! So it cant be that bad...right?

What was used:
Mango Nectar

VERDICT: It was...drinkable, lol. Definitely not going to replace my favorite flavor smoothie. But for the purposes of losing weight and making healthy choices, it will work! It was pretty much like a regular smoothie, just a blend of flavors. The main difference, the flavor of the spinach (which is half the smoothie) is extra bland but not unbearable. It's almost like a fruit smoothie that is missing something.

So this will be replacing my breakfast in the morning. I am anxious to see how much it helps my body, with both exhaustion and weight loss.
