Green smoothies are one of the healthiest choices you can make. It helps with weight loss, boosts your energy levels and its good for your overall health. It’s a great way to get your daily dose of greens in. Don’t be fooled by the colour. Green smoothies tastes just as good as regular smoothies.
The green colour is result of the raw vegetables. Raw vegetables used in green smoothies are usually kale, spinach, broccoli or other green leafy vegetables. Raw vegetables holds 100% of all it’s vitamins and nutrients. It is therefore recommended to use in green smoothies.
How to make green smoothies?
The base of every green smoothie starts with green leafy vegetables. I almost always use spinach as I find that it hardly has any taste. But another option would be kale. When starting off with green smoothies, it’s best to start with a little green and work your way up.
Next is to add at least 1 or 2 fruits or vegetables. For a more of creamier texture, I like to add avocado or banana. Followed by seeds or nuts for some healthy fats. Avocado is a great source of healthy fats. But I always have a bottle of linseed oil at hand to use as an alternative.
I prefer to use water in my green smoothies. Juice has extra added sugars. Although fruits are healthy, they do contain sugar which can easily add up when using juice in your smoothies. The grapes in this green kiwi smoothie makes it sweet enough too.
