Healthy Smoothie How To:

-2 cups of spinach ground up, next add

-1 cup of frozen berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries & black berries) and grind up, next add

-1 tablespoon of chia seeds & 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds and grind up, next add

-1 cup of coconut milk and grind up mixture until it is smooth.
