Spinach raspberry kiwi smoothie – awesomeness in a glass

I have been making smoothie bowls for a while now, so I thought I’d switch it up a bit and make some new smoothies.  This one is so tasty and some of the health benefits include boosting immunity helping to prevent certain diseases, maintaining blood sugar and blood pressure levels, aiding in digestion, and helps cell regeneration for anti-aging.
