Green Drink Recipes For Vibrant Health

We love green food and green drinks. They are packed with vitamins and good stuff and have tons of health benefits. Switching to green tea rather than caffeine-loaded coffee and tea has remarkable benefits. In fact, green tea is considered to be one of the healthiest drinks going. Green tea benefits include: fat loss, increased brain function, reduced risk of coronary disease, and protection against cancer.

Aside from switching your tea to the green variety, smoothies packed with green vegetables are also uber-healthy. We often eat vegetables in small quantities, but a smoothie packs together a bunch of fruit and veg. The result- a filling, yet low-calorie drink that has astonishing amounts of vitamins and fibre. To boost further simply add some green powders.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite green drink recipes here, and you’ll be astounded at the amounts of fibre in just one serving.
