Orange Berry Vanilla Green Smoothie

IMG_8778

Here’s a super duper quick post. Whenever I make a smoothie that turns out exceptionally yummy, I have to share it with you. Normally I just toss this and that in trying to incorporate greens, 1-2 fruits, protein, and fiber. The below combination turned out perfect for a morning smoothie with its bright citrus influence. It was light but still great fuel for my workout. Cheers!
