Green smoothies are a quick and easy way to get large amounts of healthy greens into your daily diet. Eating greens regularly is said to be one of the best ways to improve your health. They are full of fiber along with vitamins and minerals.
However, sometimes you are just not in the mood to eat your vegetables. After having this green smoothie for breakfast, you have already covered a big part of your daily need for vegetables and fruits.
Our green smoothie recipe contains Popeye's favorite vegetable spinach that is rich in Vitamin A and K as well as folate. Nettles are rich in iron, magnesium, calcium as well as Vitamin A and C. They are also said to help maintain the body's acid-alkaline balance. The mint, lemon and lime add a delicious fresh taste to this smoothie.
Starting your day with a green smoothie will make you feel great the whole day. There is no sugar or sweeteners in this recipe, just fruits, vegetables and herbs. It doesn't get healthier than this!
Blend all ingredients until smooth. This green smoothie tastes best if you put it in a fridge for half an hour before enjoying! If you want to add protein to your smoothie, add one or two tablespoons of high quality rice protein to the recipe.
