Want to feel clean, green, and oh so fresh but don’t have time nor veggies on hand? That’s how I felt yesterday, I wanted greens but didn’t want to take the time to make a salad.
Instead I opted for this refreshing, reviving, simple tonic to feed my body with greens and give me a great boost in energy. This drink was so uplifting that I drank two quarts in two hours. Bonus-great way to increase hydration during these active summer days.
The color of this drink is so calming, I felt like I was drinking pristine caribbean water without the salt. Make a glass and teleport yourself to the most relaxing place your imagination can take you…
Want to feel fresh, clean and full of greens? Then try this drink anytime of day for an instant trip to vitality and tranquility!
