Within the last year my husband and I embraced the “green smoothie.” I had never been very high on the concept of drinking my food, but I have really come to love the idea of being able to consume a whole salad’s worth of dark leafy greens and several fruit servings in one sweet creamy smoothie. I make up a big blender full of green smoothie, and then enjoy some in the morning and some later in the day for a snack.
You cannot beat the high quality nutrition contained in a green smoothie, and it’s nearly impossible to eat the 1 pound of greens that we need each day to prevent cancer and other diseases. Green smoothies have become a quick and convenient way to meet my daily greens requirements without having to spend the time to meticulously chew them. The best thing about green smoothies is the sweet delicious flavors of the fruits overpower the bitter flavors of the greens so you don’t really taste them at all.
