What is a green smoothie? Imagine getting a whole lot of living green goodness that is already chopped up so tiny that you get an almost instant energy hit. Now put some fruit with it, blend and drink. That’s a green smoothie. All you do is blend a couple of big handfuls of the green leaf of your choice with an equal amount of fruit of your choice and a couple of cups of water and there you go… nutrients and taste all in one hit.
Green smoothies are best absorbed on an empty stomach so this is the perfect breakfast. The nutrient dense quality of the green smoothie means that you are less likely to suffer from cravings during the day and since a chlorophyll molecule (the green in leaves) differs from a human blood molecule by only one atom you are really giving yourself an amazing start to the day.
Dont be tempted to add super foods to your Green smoothie- the detoxing quality of just leaf and fruit can be interupted by the addition of other ingredients so save your maca for a Choco Maca Bliss later in the day.
