Markham mama Natasha swears by these smoothies!
As defined in Wikipedia Green Smoothies are health shakes or smoothies, made by blending green leafy vegetables, such as spinach with fruit, some of which may be frozen, and water or ice. To balance flavor and nutrition the typical ratio in a green smoothie is about 60% fruit to 40% leafy greens. In my opinion it's life in a glass! Try it and you'll be hooked, literally it's known that once you start drinking these smoothies your body starts to crave the wholesome goodness. Here is a link to a few good recipes , and here are a few tips that I find helpful:
Here is a pic from my latest batch – dandelion, parsley, pineapple, honey dates, banana and apple, I make a bunch at a time and freeze them in glass mason jars for convenience.
The benefits of green smoothies are endless, they are loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, great for digestion, regularity, and a super easy way to get in your 7-8 daily servings of fruits and veggies, to name a few. As Martha would say "it's a good thing" enjoy!
