    • Mint is so fantastic – I didn’t like mint before unless it was in chocolate 🙂 but now I use it in everything and I love it in green smoothies – that little zing is so good!

  1. My husband Peter & I drank these smoothies as our drinkable breakfast this morning! I am not yet very fond of green smoothies but these were delicious though!! x

    • Wow wonderful – I am so happy you actually enjoyed it too 🙂 Yayy, maybe it’s an acquired taste for you and one day you will be loving them 😉 I think the trick is in the beginning to add lots of fruits and just a little green.
