Red Berry Celery Smoothie – The Perfect Gift to Your Loved One (And to Yourself)

Red Berry Celery SmoothieCelery smoothies are among my husband’s favorite green smoothies. So to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I decided to make him a “green smoothie” that goes well with this holiday! One of my earliest green smoothie posts was a blueberry celery smoothie that is similar and equally delicious. Share this smoothie with your special someone.

To get a nice Valentine’s Day color for this smoothie, I used mainly red-colored ingredients: A nice mix of strawberries, raspberries (both frozen) and a red delicious apple. Add some banana chunks to make the smoothie extra creamy. If you’re new to green smoothies, I would highly recommend a celery based smoothie. You can’t go wrong with those smoothies because the celery flavor typically comes out more subtle and isn’t as noticeable as leafy greens such as kale or chard.
