This Is The Best Mint Green Smoothie Recipe You'll Find

It's amazing how a few fibre dense dates and calmative mint can really overshadow the spinach and pumpkin seeds in this recipe. The taste is sweet and breath freshening, masking what is a tremendously nutritious meal. 

Pumpkin seeds are caloric dense but they are so good for you. Manganese, magnesium, protein, zinc, iron. And the healthy fats are brilliant for glowing skin.

And you know about spinach. It's such a multi-vitamin but lets look at just vitamin A. This two cup, 60g serve, is your entire day's worth. That means strong bones and teeth, immune boosting antioxidants and healthy white blood cells.
