Kermit The Frog Smoothie

Kermit the frog smoothie.

Why the name? Well you have to give the kid a name. It was green like Kermit, so I figured that was close enough. Just green smoothie sounds boring.
Disclaimer: No real frogs were harmed in the making of this smoothie or any Muppets either.

Green is a great colour, reminds of being outside. Green to me is full of energy and life. And that is a feeling I get when I drink and eat green foods.
This smoothie is light, refreshing and slightly chewy thanks to the celery and cleansing, that is the cucumber.

Not sure what to really say about this smoothie, so I will tell you what I like.

I like the colour, the taste, the ease in making, the low calories, I like that it is a natural multi vitamin in a glass.
