Recipe | Creamy Post Workout Hair Dream - A Double Duty Green Smoothie

This incredibly delicious smoothie I concocted works double duty.

I started making green smoothies last year back in October (see post here), when I accepted a 30 day challenge online by Simple Green Smoothies on Instagram.  Since then I've been keeping up the practice of making green smoothies.  The challenge was again presented this month - January 2016 - for another 30 days, and again I accepted.
You might be thinking, 'why accept the same challenge?' 
Well, because it kept me engaged.  There were new recipes provided.  AND it builds a habit.  
I'm not up to actually having a green smoothie EVERYday, but just having introduced green smoothies to my diet is an improvement, and I would like to get to having 1 everyday.  Hence, I'm still being challenged.

I also accepted a Hair Challenge a while back as well (see post here), which has a juicing component.  I had been familiar with juicing from a few years ago, but no longer have access to a juicer, and so I decided to have juicing ingredients meet smoothie - hey there, hello!

That's how this Double Duty Green Smoothie was born!  The ingredients serve to promote both a healthy body (supporting my current goals and nutrition requirements), and healthy hair.
But, don't take my word for it, try it yourself.

Here's the recipe
