Benefits of Green Smoothies

Save

A green smoothie is a fruit smoothie blended with greens, such as baby spinach, kale or Swiss chard. The idea is to get the nutritional benefits from the greens without the taste. The flavor of the fruit overpowers the flavor of the greens. Green smoothies can be made by blending any variety of fruit and fruit juice, and then the greens, in a blender or food processor.

Decreased Cravings

  • By consuming green smoothies, your body is getting more of the nutrients it needs. This means your body won't crave sweets and junk food nearly as much. Weight loss is not uncommon with the addition of green smoothies to your diet.

Easy to Digest

  • Blending the fruit and greens allows your body to absorb nutrients well, making green smoothies easy to digest. This is especially beneficial for those who cannot eat raw fruit and vegetables.

Easy to Make

  • Green smoothies can be made at home or anywhere you have access to a blender or food processor. Preparation only takes a couple of minutes from the time you blend the fruit and greens and then serve.

Increased Energy

  • Green smoothies will give you increased energy because of the dense nutrient content. Your body will function more efficiently in your daily activities.

Nutritious

  • More greens can be consumed in a green smoothie than a person would normally eat during meals. A green smoothie contains vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and healthy carbohydrates. You will also get a good supply of fiber from each serving, which is good for the colon and promotes bowel movement.
