Green smoothies are catching on because it’s an easy way to get your greens in, while also being delicious. As long as you don’t overdo it with the sweeteners (honey or agave) and stick with low-GI fruits (apples, pears, kiwi, strawberries), green smoothies can be a nutritious ally in your quest for overall health.
• Customizable - Swap out your greens and other ingredients throughout the week to avoid getting burned out.
• Easy to digest - Blending causes the cells in the smoothie ingredients to rupture, making nutrients readily accessible by your body.
• Fiber - Because they’re made from whole foods, green smoothies still contain fiber, which can’t be said for fruit juices.
• Portable and Storable - You can make up a couple days worth of green smoothies at a time and it’s a convenient way to pack in a lot of whole food benefits in a small container.
