I decided to jump on the bandwagon and try out green smoothies. I had one day and decided I really need to make this a daily part of my diet. I started doing some research for recipes, etc and found they had many health benefits. I have noticed a big difference in how they have helped me. My body seems to function better when I have had one. I really crave them when I don't have one.
Here is my basic recipe
2 cups spinach
2 cups frozen fruit
2 cups water
1/2 cup apple juice (with no sugar added)
sometimes I add a tablespoon of Honey or Agave. Usually its sweet enough without.
Since I have a simple and cheap blender I start by blending the spinach and water and apple juice. I then add the frozen fruit. I have done many combo's of frozen fruit. I buy my spinach and fruit at costco. Of course you don't have to buy it there but it is cheaper to buy in bulk.
Here is some combo's I have done
strawberries and banana's
strawberries, mangoes, pinapple, papapya
strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries
