Fruits and vegetables are essential to a healthy and fit body. They have high anti-oxidant properties and as such, protect against cancer and other diseases. They lower high blood pressure, and fight against heart and cardiovascular diseases.

Unfortunately, we don’t consume enough of these natural whole foods. Most individuals fall way below the recommended requirement of 9 to 12 servings per day, thus depriving the body of the needed nutrients for it to function optimally.

Thankfully, some enterprising individual decided to blend together fruits and vegetables and voila! The green smoothie was born.

Green smoothies are a convenient, delicious and nutritious way to meet your daily fruit and veggies requirement. Unlike some so-called ‘fruit smoothies’ that are loaded with sugar, green smoothies use only the natural goodness of fruit and vegetables. Surprisingly, these healthy smoothies taste absolutely heavenly and can become pretty addictive.

The immense health benefits of drinking these green smoothies are simply staggering. With a 6:4 ratio (6 parts fruit, 4 parts greens), they not only taste good, they provide the nutrition needed by the body. Consuming two to three cups is enough to give your body the energy it needs to get through the day.

Green smoothies are so good for you because they work on the cellular level. Dont like veggies? Try a green smoothie!

Guzzling down those leafy greens will also detoxify your body by ridding your bowels of toxins. Daily consumption of green smoothies also reduces, if not completely eliminates, your cravings for sugar-rich and other processed foods. Consuming your greens this way naturally minimizes your oil and salt intake.

For those intent on losing the pounds, green smoothies are natural and healthy alternatives to meal replacement shakes whose safety is still subject, especially in long-term use. Because green smoothies are loaded with all the nutrients your body needs, drinking them in the mornings and in the afternoons when your stomach is either empty or not really full, will satisfy whatever hunger cravings you may have so you’re less tempted to pig-out on those chips or sugary treats.

The detoxification ability of green smoothies is vital to having glowing, radiant skin. When the body is able to eliminate toxins and keep the bowel moving for at least 2 times in a day with the aid of green smoothies, you can expect your skin to clear up and retain a youthful, shiny glow. And because they’re liquid, they’re easily digestible and are thus stomach-friendly. Whereas meal replacement shakes are low in fiber, green smoothies are rich in it and barring a certain adjustment period that varies from individual to individual, they help maintain regular bowel movements.

Super nutritious and delicious way to get your recommended 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Regular consumption of fruit and vegetables can help to improve your hair, skin. It can also help with weight management, and overall health. I have a green smoothie every morning. All of the fruit and veggies I use are all natural and organic and helps keep me satiated and full of energy throughout the day. Can be used as a snack, meal replacement or in addition to your meal. If you are new to green smoothies i would suggest starting with one cup of green and adding a bit more fruit, working your way up. But honestly, using this recipe i cant taste the kale at all! Do you like smoothies? Whats you’re favorite?

INGREDIENTS

□ 2 cups of organic baby kale (you can also use spinach)

□ ½ Frozen Banana

□ ½ Cup Frozen Mango Chunks

□ ½ Cup Frozen Pineapple Chunks

□ Filtered/Bottled water (you can also use fruit juice, milk, almond milk or soy milk if you prefer)

OPTIONAL INGREDIENTS

□ Small handful or raw almonds

□ 1 scoop of Matcha Green Tea: the benefits are TREMENDOUS!!!! High in antioxidants, binds cancer cells and flushes them from the body, boosts metabolism, increases energy, boosts immunity, detoxifies and sooooo much more!!! I HIGHLY recommend it!

*I prefer to buy my fruit fresh when possible. This way I can pick out the ripest ones, cut them in chunks and freeze them. But you can also find them in the frozen aisle of your local grocery store.
