My favorite smoothie recipe and why smoothies are so good for you

Smoothies are a great way to get some vegetable servings in, especially for people who don’t like vegetables. If you make a smoothie right, you won’t even taste the vegetables.  If you’ve been on Pinterest or Instagram for any amount of time, you’ve probably seen a decent number of green smoothie pictures floating around.  

Why is that?

Because they’re good for you!

Green smoothies are a great way to get fiber, vitamins, and minerals – all served up in one glass that you can take on the go!

Smoothies are:

  • Full of vitamins, enzymes, and minerals.
  • Easy to digest, which means optimal assimilation of the nutrients you need.
  • Great for stabilizing blood sugar (I always add a healthy fat, and fat is key for blood sugar stabilization).
  • A fabulous way to consume a variety of different fruits or vegetables at one time.
  • Terrific for cleansing the body of toxicity.
  • An easy way to add more fiber to your diet.

When you add in a handful of greens to your smoothie, you can an extra dose of awesomeness in every serving!

Here are some of my favorite greens to add to smoothies:

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Swiss chard
  • Mint
  • Parsley

If you are interested in trying some green smoothies, here is the recipe for my favorite smoothie, Thin Mint Fat Blasting Smoothie! I love it because I love mint chocolate chip ice cream, and it tastes just like it!
