As kids, we all heard our parents remind us at the dinner table, “Eat your greens! Your veggies are good for you!” These days, it has become commonplace to drink your greens. Have you tried a green drink yet? They are refreshing, delicious and can give you real energy. Plus, green drinks are much better for you than a cup of coffee. The following is the Energy Boost Smoothie recipe from RASA juice shop.
Lisa Consiglio Ryan is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and CEO of RASA juice shop and Whole Health Designs, a clean-eating lifestyle company.

Then pursuing her education with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she turned her personal quest into her vocation with the launch of Whole Health Designs and most recently, RASA juice shop.

“Greens are nutritional powerhouses packed with nutrients your body needs to boost immunity and keep your organs in shape. People who have participated in my smoothie challenge have experienced glowing skin, weight loss, less bloating, more energy and fewer cravings,” Lisa says.
