For many years’ nutritionists and dietitians have been trying to educate people about the benefits of vegetables; especially green vegetables. But it was not clear how one could incorporate green vegetables in everyone’s daily diet. Normally anything green is referred to as a salad and other greens with greater benefits are usually left out. The problem is the taste of greens which is not very appealing to most people. Broccoli has been forced down on children for generations but most parents still failed.

Greens improve your nutrition, digestion and energy eliminates cravings and helps you to loose weight. Awareness has changed a lot in the last decade and methods of cooking have undergone a drastic change. More emphasis on taste has won many hearts and green smoothies have gained popularity. Main reason for this is probably more options invented by chefs or fitness loving people. Those greens can be a gourmet dishes as well as smoothie. These boring vegetables are a great way to detox and came in fashion with wheat grass shots at the juice bars.

As more and more health benefits of green vegetables were recognized, many people willingly added these vegetable smoothies in their diets. Blending leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, Swiss chard, collard greens, celery, parsley and broccoli with fruits makes very tasteful and healthy smoothies.  All citrus fruits like oranges, kiwi, and sweet fruits like mangoes, apples and bananas are added to make smoothies more palatable.

Green drinks get their color from chlorophyll, a nutrient rich pigment found in leafy vegetables, that cleans the body form harmful toxins, oxygenates the blood and helps boost energy levels.  Avocados are excellent source of vitamin E, which is one of the most powerful antioxidant. It helps soothe the dry skin.  Adding some avocado to green smoothie will have exceptional benefits for your skin.

Drinking green smoothie is a great way to incorporate tremendous amounts of greens into your diet. One serving of smoothie contains more greens than most people get in a week. Green vegetables also have adequate amount of high quality amino acids, enough to build the protein that supports the muscle mass.  Blending your smoothie well will get it that creamy consistency, helping your body absorb the maximum amount of nutrients from your greens.

Once green smoothie has become a part of your daily diet you will experience and realize that cleansing is a great way to reach your health and beauty potential.  It will rejuvenate your energy levels, and by sweeping toxins out of your body regularly you will feel light throughout the day.
