Copycat Detox Island Green Smoothie

Today I am sharing my copycat detox island green smoothie recipe with you.

I love long island green smoothies…but I stopped buying as many smoothies when I go out, just because they do break the bank!

But, I do love the smoothies from Tropical smoothie. 

Making your own smoothies can reduce the expense by more than half. Not to mention that smoothies come together in less than five minutes!

I had to make my own version of a tropical smoothie cafe detox island green smoothie. 

It’s saving me a couple of bucks and time waiting in the queue at Tropical Smoothie Cafe.
