The Healthiest Cocktail

It’s safe to say that these cocktails aren’t the same that you would get at your neighborhood bar. But they are just as fun as these classic cocktails and not only delicious but insanely healthy! Not only is a smoothie or juice a wonderful breakfast or snack, but a wonderful way to kickstart a healthy day!

Since this is a “spin” on these classic cocktails, they are obviously not going to containg alcohol, but you can always serve them in a martini glass anyway! But they are no less enjoyable, even though they look totally different! So here we go! All that you will need are the ingredients listed below and a blender/juicer. For an extra kick, I have included a special “Nutritional Boost” Option which gives out a few options that you could add to your smoothie to make it extra nutrient dense!
