This smoothie is a simple and tasty way to get anticancer greens into your diet and support your healthy cells. This is a great place to start if you’re new to green smoothies. Years ago, when I first entered the nutrition field and green smoothies were about to hit their popularity peak, this smoothie was my go-to. Years later, it’s still part of my morning repertoire, and even my young son gobbles it up. When a kid will drink it, you know it really has the stamp of approval.
