Mint helps sooth the di­ges­tive tract and elim­i­nates tox­ins from the body. It is is also rich in an­tiox­i­dants, an­ti­fun­gal, anti-bac­te­rial and has a cool­ing and calm­ing ef­fect which makes it great for healthy, glow­ing skin. Spinach is a great source of di­etary fi­bre, pro­tein, iron and cal­cium—which makes this smoothie a great start to your morn­ing rou­tine.

You can find fresh mint and ed­i­ble flow­ers from Riverview Herbs, and spinach is one of the first greens avail­able in the spring­time in Nova Sco­tia, so keep an eye out at your lo­cal farmers’ mar­ket!
