Green Smoothies

Green smoothies are made in a blender from a combination of fresh fruit, green leaves, which can include herbs, and water. Some people like to use nut milks such as almond milk or coconut milk instead of water.

Green Smoothies are extremely nutritious. The blending process releases vital nutrients from the cells of the plants so they are easily absorbed into your body.

They are great for detox as they contain many nutrients that are needed by the detox system and fiber which helps to keep your bowels moving to get the toxins out of your body as quickly as possible.

If you have never tried them before it’s best to start off with 60 % fruit and 40% leaves. As you become accostomed to the taste you can increase the ratio of greens to fruit.

Spinach, all kinds of lettuce, kale, chard, bok choy, Collards, watercress, arugula, (rocket), beet greens, turnip greens, micro greens, parsley, basil, cilantro (fresh coriander), are all great in green smoothies.  The darker the leaf the better it is for you.

Micro greens are the latest foodie trend ( a healthy one for a change) and they are ideal to add to your Green Detox Smoothie.

      Hi Dana,

      Glad you like my new theme. I had been having a lot of trouble with the previous one loading and I didn’t really like the design. I hope this one will prove to help readers find what they are looking for.

      The 48 hour Green Smoothie detox is very easy to do once you have all the ingredients lined up and a good blender. I find that Green Smoothies really keep you going.

      Good health

      Sandy
