Mango Banana Superfood Green Breakfast Smoothie

Here's the skinny: we want to be healthy and get on the green drink bandwagon, but after (unsuccessfully) trying several sage shakes, we learned if it tastes like grass, we won't make a habit of it. Which is why we're crazy about our latest creation: a leafy green (yet entirely edible!) drink recipe we've adapted from Julie Morris' Superfood Smoothies. We use flaxseed instead of hemp hearts since they are easier to find and lower in calories, and because we love protein to help us stay full, we often substitute greek yogurt for almond milk.  We make it the night before, and it keeps us full and energized all morning!
