There’s nothing quite like the invigorating color of bright green smoothies. Just looking at the deep chlorophyll green makes you feel healthy. But looking at it reminds you of the taste of spinach or what you would imagine grass to taste like.
Actually, a brilliant green smoothie can taste amazing. Added flavors like spices, berries and tropical fruits can make a green smoothie taste divine. So below are several types of green smoothies that don’t taste green.
