Does the thought of a green smoothie make you cringe? It doesn’t have to. All you need is the right recipe and a good blender. Green smoothies are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. We all know how important is to eat our vegetables. It’s nearly impossible to get all the nutrition we need from three meals a day. The soil is becoming increasingly depleted of vital nutrients. 1 This makes it more difficult to get the optimal nutrition our bodies need to thrive. Some of the amazing benefits of drinking green smoothies are:

Increased Energy: Green smoothies provide a natural boost of energy from all the vitamins and minerals.

Fast Preparation:  Have a million things to do? Green smoothies are easy to make for breakfast or when you are on the go, especially if you prep the ingredients ahead of time. Using a high powered blender like a Vitamix makes cleanup easy and fast.

Fiber: Green smoothies are loaded with easily digestible fiber. Hello bowel regularity! Fiber lowers cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Nutrient Dense: Green smoothies are a powerhouse of nutrition. They are low in calories and an easy way to get your vitamins and minerals.

Weight Loss: Green smoothies are fantastic at trimming your waistline. They decrease cravings for junk foods and fill you up with all the good stuff.

Alkalinizing: Vegetables are rich in alkaline minerals and help your body maintain proper pH balance. More oxygen!

Bone Building: All of the alkaline minerals strengthen your bones and help prevent osteoporosis.

Lower Blood Pressure: Green smoothies have a vast array of phytonutrients that have a blood pressure lowering effect.

Boost Your Immune System: The more vital nutrients your body has to work with the stronger your immune system. This helps your body resist and fight infections.

Glowing skin: One of the perks of all the alkalinizing vegetables is a glowing complexion. When your pH balances your body can release all of the built up toxins and this allows your skin to clear.

Hydration: Green smoothies contain a lot of water and help flush toxins out of the body.
