The feel good Super Green Smoothie

Go Green!

You might have heard lately people talking about “green smoothies” and wondering: what is a green smoothie?

A green smoothie is a freshly made, blended meal that you drink like a milkshake.  It’s made from mostly raw living plant foods such as dark leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fruit.

 

 

 

Increase energy and fight premature aging!

More importantly is that green smoothies give you a sustained, alkalinizing energy that helps you to feel more capable and youthful.

In a way, all green smoothies are taking on the same fight – battling off the everyday irritants and toxins from daily environmental pollution, or processed and packaged food.

Armed with antioxidents, a daily green smoothie can be a powerful weapon in the fight against premature aging.

 

 

Green can be yummy!

It turns out, green smoothies taste a whole lot better than they look.  In fact, they can taste amazing.

You don’t often taste the vegetables in the smoothie at all, except as accent flavors that give the drink an appetizing edge.

It’s all about the ratio of ingredients and discovering what fruits complement what vegetables, so that the fruit becomes the predominant flavor.

However, the trick is to use only enough fruit to enhance flavor without overdoing fructose – the sugar-carbohydrate within fruits.

Here are some of the top health benefits of green smoothies:
