How To Make A Green Smoothie Tasty Every Time
One of the easiest ways for me to make sure I eat all those nutritious fruits and veggies I buy at the farmer's market is by making smoothies. When I started experimenting making veggie/fruit smoothies the consistency I got depended on what I had in my fridge. But with trial and error, and a little help from my friends at Raw Family, now I know how to make the tastiest smoothies every time.

She demonstrates that by adding fruits that are rich in soluble fiber you can transform the texture of a green smoothie into something creamy and delicious. Mmmm...
