All in One Green Smoothie

Can I first just say how amazingly good this tastes?  I always love when a smoothie is so full of goodness AND tastes amazing.  Coconut water for hydration, cilantro to detoxify, cuke apple and pear for fibre, avocado for healthy fat/protein, chia for protein…Can it get any better?!

Serve right away.  I like to throw a few fresh berries on top and an extra sprinkle of chia seeds.

This smoothie is such a great start to the day and super refreshing!
