It’s funny we haven’t yet covered it and we are half way through
the guide! What exactly is a smoothie?
A smoothie is a thick beverage blend of different vegetables and
fruits. Green smoothies use green vegetables such as spinach,
celery cucumbers, green apples, etc.
The beauty of a smoothie is that you get many different
nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants at one go. With the
correct recipe, your smoothie will not only be healthy, but it will
also be tasty. Many people believe that healthy food and tasty
food cannot be reconciled. This is false. You can make a healthy
and tasty smoothie.
Unlike normal smoothies, you will not be using yoghurt or milk to
make your smoothie. The key here is to keep things natural.
Many of the latest studies also show that milk and dairy products
are not as beneficial as they were purported to be in the past. In
fact, most are detrimental to one’s health.
Since the goal here is to keep things raw and natural, the best
way to make a smoothie will be to use chilled vegetables and
It has been shown that smoothies taste better when they are
cold. It is better to use cold ingredients rather than to make a smoothie with vegetables at room temperature and chill it later
You will need good blender too. You can get one from your
nearest appliance store or you could buy it online from Amazon
(which goes without saying, do your research online first and
make an informed decision as we all have different needs and
Add 2 or 3 cups of your green vegetables into the blender. Add 1
cup of water and if you have a sweet tooth, you can add some
apple juice or pineapple juice to the mix. Turn on the
blender/smoothie maker till you have a thick blend.
Congrats! You have a smoothie that’s good to go.
Of course, if you are like me, you are super busy and you like
shortcuts. For time saving and less mess I absolutely love this
