There is a new wave in healthy eating called green smoothies. Smoothies are not a new concept. We know fruit smoothies, such as banana and strawberry smoothies, and smoothie companies such as Smoothie King and Jamba are everywhere. Now smoothies have entered into a new era of going green. Green smoothies are a great and fast way to get veggies into your diet and good for the family.
Why green smoothies:
- help lead a healthy lifestyle
- lots of fiber
Another thing that is awesome about green smoothies is that there is not just one way to have them. There are so many variations to green smoothies, I am sure you can have a different one for at least 6 months. Now, if you are thinking about the idea of trying a smoothie, here’s a great recipe to try.
- 2 cups spinach, fresh
- 1 shot (frozen cube) of wheatgrass
- 1 cups water
- 1 cup pineapple
- 1 cup mango
- 2 bananas
Combine water and spinach in blender and puree until smooth. Next, add the remaining fruits and blend again. You can add more water (or ice) for desired constituency.
