Green Smoothie for Weight Loss?

Hey Gorgeous Ones!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend & that you're ready to conquer this brand new week!
After B & I ate an entire dozen of Krispy Kreme doughnuts this weekend (true story)'s time to get my booty in gear...again! So...I wanted to share one of my favorite "green recipes" with you! 

 It’s a fast, easy, and delicious way to get a big dose of vitamins and minerals, plus it tastes FANTASTIC!!
Don’t let the color fool you! It's sweet and filling – even your kids will love it! They love to name it the “Monster Smoothie” or “Shreck Smoothie” or some other fun name but believe me, kids go crazy for it! And... it’s a great way to sneak in some powerful green nutrition into their diet.
It's super fast to make for breakfast, or a snack...& perfect for us on the go, or anyone trying to lose weight.

It takes about 1 min to make, literally!
This recipe is super simple. All you need is a blender and the following ingredients:
-1-2 bananas
-frozen peaches
-frozen mango
-a couple handfuls of spinach
- ice (if desired)
Add enough water to blend and enjoy, that’s it! Forget the dehydrating morning latte and get the glow with a Green Smoothie instead.

People swear by these. 
I haven't had them long enough to know yet, but I'm on my way! 
Great for weight loss, digestive health, supporting the immune system, and as a healthy and filling snack. 
After a couple of weeks you’ll have that ‘Glow’ – glowing skin, hair, nails, even eyes get brighter! 
Who doesn’t want that, right?

Try any combo you like, all you need is a base of bananas, fruit of your choice and a couple handfuls of your favorite green (I like spinach as it has a really mild flavor that blends well).
Go ahead, try it!  It may just change your life!
If you do, or come up with another awesome combo...I'd love to hear about it!

Sweet Dreams, Beauties.
