An Expert-Approved Green Smoothie For The Perfect Spring Detox

smoothie1
There's a good reason behind the current mania for green smoothies — these potent concoctions are packed full of calcium, fiber, and vitamins. (Which means they're a great add-on for those days when you opt for a burger instead of a salad for lunch.) But, whipping up a green smoothie at home can pose a bit of a challenge, especially if you want it to taste like something other than pulverized kale.
Luckily, JoAnna Hawthorne of Hawthorne Homemade in Cleveland Park has offered up a recipe for her so-tasty Green Goddess smoothie. Hawthorne says this smoothie is a hit among her patrons because it's good for you and goes down easy. Click through to learn how to add some drinkable green goodness to your diet.
