Video demonstration: How to make a simple green smoothie
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study was reported in the Canadian Journal of Dietetic Practice & Research (2004). Subjects who received a green drink daily for 3 months had significant improvements in energy versus those who received a placebo. Statistical trends were observed for improvement in mental health, vitality, well-being, and overall health among the green drink users.
Ever wonder about green smoothies? They are a great way to get the nutrients your body needs, you can add what fruits and vegetables that appeal to you (or that contain the nutrients you need) and enjoy a tall glass anytime. It really is super easy! Here is a demonstration video to get you started:
Another green smoothie recipe idea that I posted earlier:
Green Smoothie Energizer: 1 cup filtered water, 1 c spinach, 1 c kale, 1/2 apple, 1/4 banana, ¼ c blueberry, 1 carrot, and 2 T flax seed. Last but not least, my Juice Plus whole food concentrate which adds another 30 fruits, vegetables and grains.
I've used other blenders but the Vitamix is my favorite. Learn More or Order Here.
Now you try it at home and let me know what you put in yours below in the comments. Happy smoothie making!
