Celebrity nutritionist, Kimberly Snyder, is all about her glowing green smoothie. She says itâ€™s key to her celeb clients glowing skin and detoxed bodies.Â Even though Iâ€™ve been opting to purchase green juice from my local deli I sought out the recipe for the magic smoothie that Kimâ€™s celeb clients rave about. Â Now all I have to do is whip out my blender.
The pre-packaged green juice I buy has most of the same ingredients in it, and is more convenient for me since Iâ€™m always on the go, but blending yourself ensures you receive all of the precious nutrients at their freshest.
