Two Great Smoothie Recipes

We all know how important it is to get our daily dose of fruits and vegetables, but let's face it...it can be a challenge to get all the servings we need each day.  It's kind of hard to munch on carrot sticks while driving and talking on our cell phones Happy  I try to start my mornings off right by having either a green smoothie or a hot pink smoothie, helps me to stay on track for healthy eating for the rest of the day.  Now don't be scared by the names of the smoothies, I promise they are delicious and you will forget just how good they are for you!  My kids love the green smoothie, my son asks me to make it often and he has seen what goes in it.  Trust me when I tell you that I do not like beets, hate would be a better suited word, but I actually like the hot pink smoothie.  So here are the recipes, enjoy Happy  Stephanie Thompson
 
HOT PINK COCONUT SMOOTHIE
