The High-Powered Plant Smoothie

It can be difficult to get your daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables.  While I don't encourage drinking most of your nutrients, smoothies are a convenient way to increase your plant intake.  Below are two of my recipes, for veggie and fruit lovers alike.  Both smoothies contain whey powder for added protein, but could easily be made without.  Simply chop ingredients and blend to your desired consistency.  Enjoy!
