Green Smoothie for Healthy Hair

Green smoothies have been an integral part of my hair care (and skin care) since I went natural over three years ago. They are easy, tasty and  above all else, excellent for overall health. The following is a great smoothie recipe – excellent for your breakfast on-the-go – that will leave you energised, inspired and regular (healthy poop, healthy you!). Again, like any recipe, please feel free to modify for your taste and sensitivities.

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples (medium) – preferably organic
  • 1/4 lemon (medium)

You will also need:
