Oh hey. In a day or two, you’re going to be at the store grabbing limes for your Cinco de Mayo margaritas (you are picking up limes for margaritas, right?!) Well, grab a couple extra. And a couple more. Because this might just be your new favorite green smoothie recipe. It’s definitely mine.

And after you down all those margaritas on Sunday, starting off Monday with a healthy, vitamin-filled green smoothie is going to sound mighty nice.  So you might as well be prepared. (Be sure you’ve got vanilla yogurt, spinach, and bananas in your cart, too).

I love my green smoothies – okay, so I’m borderline obsessed with them. Seriously, they’re such a creamy, sweet, fruity, milkshake-y to sneak tons of nutrients into your diet. I love them for breakfast, as an afternoon pick-me-up, after yoga class … pretty much any time I can think up an excuse to have one, I’ll have one.

And especially this one. With its tangy citrus and sweet vanilla, it’s a little reminiscent of a creamsicle. All of the goodness and none of the guilt. Not that we (four margaritas later) know anything about guilt.
