Green smoothies are high in fibre, protein, and vitamins and minerals, all of which aid in the detoxification of the body. Green drink recipes are typically made with kale or spinach, both of which are strong in fibre and hence beneficial to your digestive system!
Any smoothie can be simply prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate your smoothie and consume it within the following 1-2 days. 1 cup fruit (frozen) (mixed berries, tropical mix, banana) 1 cup greens (fresh) (arugula, spinach, or kale) 1/2 – 1 gallon of milk (cow, coconut, almond, soy, etc.) 1/2 tablespoon seeds, ground (flax, chia, etc.)
New to green smoothies? I’d recommend starting with fresh or frozen spinach as your green of choice. When compared to other greens, spinach has a relatively mild flavour, and if prepared properly, you won’t even notice it! We showed you how to make a basic green smoothie above, but don’t be afraid to experiment with extra ingredients!
Green smoothies for weight loss can be made in a high-powered blender. Simply combine all ingredients. Using a high-powered blender, blend until the mixture is completely smooth. Starting with 1/2 cup of milk and increasing as needed, depending on how thick you prefer your smoothies. Serve your smoothie right away.
