Super Green Smoothie

This energizing and thirst-quenching smoothie has a beautiful green color thanks to abundant amounts of spinach and cucumber. The addition of half a lemon adds a slight citrusy flavor while the apples impart a bit of sweetness to the beverage. Meanwhile, the banana adds creaminess to the smoothie. It is a healthy way of starting out the day, as it provides several servings of fruits and vegetables. It can also be enjoyed as a refreshing midday pick-me-up.
