Why Green Smoothies?

green smoothie, green smoothie recipe, health benefitsThe first time I put up a picture of a green smoothie I had made on Facebook, there were two main reactions. Firstly, ‘wow, I was thinking of trying those, are they any good?’ and an equal number of ‘Ugh, are you mad, why would you drink that?!’ ;-)

Until I tried one, I was in the ‘ugh’ camp – drink spinach and kale, are you mad?! Then I made one because I needed to get more raw green veg into my diet and I was amazed that I really liked it.

They can be used for a number of reasons: to detox naturally, to lose weight, to be a meal replacement, to get more raw fruit and veg into your diet and/or to provide good nutrition after a workout. Whatever your reason, trust me when I say they are worth a go!

As long as you get the balance of fruit to veg right (I recommend 60% fruit:40% green/other veg if you don’t want to taste the green veg at all), a whole new world opens up.

You can add superfoods, supplement powders, seeds, nuts, use all kinds of milk and yoghurt as your base – the possibilities really are endless. Just watch how many fruits with high natural sugar levels you use, especially if you are diabetic or wanting to lose weight.
