The Most Expensive Smoothie Ever?
Guess how much Miranda Kerr drops for this über shake
With her new web series for Net-a-Porter, "The Body Beautiful", Miranda Kerr has officially joined the ranks of celebs-turned-lifestyle-gurus who tell us how to live the good life from their gilded pedestals. (We're talking to you, Gwyneth.) First up in her series? The trendy green smoothie that pretty much every fitness buff, yogi, model, celebrity, and all of their mothers are drinking.
But does this mean that sweet Miranda is turning to the dark green side (AKA entering a Goop phase of her life)? Goop founder and health snob extraordinaire Gwyneth created a family meal plan that reportedly costs $300.65 a day, so we were afraid that our favorite Aussie would follow in her footsteps.
We calculated a cost risk analysis of Miranda Kerr's green concoctions. What we found? While spendy, it's not the wallet-buster we thought it would be (although buying all of the ingredients will definitely put a dent in your budget).
