With National Spinach Day being tomorrow, I thought now would be a great time to share my favorite way to use a green smoothie recipe. If you had asked me a few years ago if I thought I would ever love drinking my spinach, I would have said no way! But, in fact, I have found that there is no shortage of delicious ways to enjoy spinach in smoothie form. Before I started making them, I had no idea how well they went with some of my go to smoothie ingredients like Greek yogurt, bananas, berries, mango...I could go on and on!

Not only do green smoothies taste great, but they make for an easy way to sneak in a healthy start to your day. My mornings are jam packed. Getting the kids ready for school, dropping them off, then racing to my desk means I don't always have time to fix myself an involved hot breakfast. Green smoothie recipes save the day! I know you fellow mamas can relate...We feed everyone but ourselves right? No more!

So, just in case you love green smoothies as much as I do or you need a little convincing to try them out, I've rounded up some oh so tasty green smoothie recipes that look so good, I can't believe anyone would turn them down!
