Fresh Start Smoothie

Whether you find it challenging to eat your veggies, or you love them so much that you want veggies with every meal, adding them to this Shakeology smoothie is a perfect way to sneak in an extra serving and get a healthy start to your day. We blended a whole cup of kale into this high-fiber green smoothie, but you can substitute spinach or any other green you like. The mellow creaminess of coconut and banana and the zing of freshly grated lime zest and chopped fresh ginger mask any vegetable flavor.

Vanilla Shakeology lets the flavors of the other ingredients shine, while adding just the right amount of sweetness, but this smoothie also works well with Chocolate and Greenberry Shakeology. Don’t have Shakeology yet? Get every flavor of Shakeology here!
