You do not need much in terms of equipment other than a blender which will be enough to make delicious smoothies.

Smoothies are generally very healthy since they’re loaded with various nutrients that you need especially minerals and vitamins.

They are also very rich in fiber and iron. In most cases, green smoothies are made from vegetables such as kale, spinach, collard greens and lettuce.  However, other ingredients could be added into the recipe include watercress, dandelion greens, parsley or any other leafy, edible green veggies.

If you don’t like the taste of raw vegetables, adding your favorite fruit such as mangoes, bananas, pears or apples is a great way to cover the flavor of the greens and sweeten the smoothie slightly.  Just don’t go overboard with the fruit.

Here are top benefits of drinking green smoothies:

1. A green smoothie aids in weight loss

Green smoothies are great if you want to lose weight. First, they help you feel full for a long time therefore helping to cut down on food cravings which means you won’t eat as much as you may normally. They are also rich in nutrition, minerals, vitamins, healthy carbs, and fiber.

These are essential for quick and safe weight loss and will work efficiently with your body so you don’t feel starved.

By cutting down on your unhealthy cravings for junk food, you will be able to slim down by cutting out those empty and poor nutrient calories.

2. Enhances digestion

Healthy green smoothies are loaded with dietary fiber which are essential for detoxification of the colon which helps the body rid itself of toxins and waste. In addition, green smoothies also have enzymes which enhance digestion and also help in better nutrient absorption.

Using a quality blender also helps to ‘unlock’ nutrients while at the same time maximizing their circulation in the body.

Drinking green smoothies is a great alternative to eating the same vegetables in raw, solid form since you are drinking it and it helps your system to absorb the nutrients faster and more efficiently.

3. Provides increased energy

Green smoothies are a good source of energy. You can get a powerful boost of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and many other nutrients from smoothies and the beautiful things is that these come in their natural form.

The drink is digested amazingly into the body and the nutrients are absorbed at the optimum levels of nutrition thus supplying your body with the much needed energy to take you through the day.

This means by drinking green smoothies, you will be supplying your body with all the essential nutrients needed for building and maintaining strong bones including magnesium, calcium and phosphorus.

In fact, a glass of quality green smoothie recipe is essentially packed with more calcium than a glass of milk.

5. Boosts brain power

When you drink healthy smoothies, your brain gets a boost and you can enjoy a lively day. Green smoothies are good for enhancing cognitive function unlike processed foods which typically slows down the brain function thus making one feel sluggish.

You will find a lot of healthy nutrients in smoothies, most of which are responsible for improving your cognitive function while at the same time supplying the brain with a lot of natural energy.

6. Helps clear and improve the skin

Healthy fruits and vegetables are known to help clear the skin, leaving it looking more radiant and smooth. When fruits are vegetables are blended down it makes them more easily absorbable by your digestive system.

Smoothies are rich in fiber which enhances the body’s ability to eliminate toxins through kidneys, liver and colon function.  A side benefit is it helps clear up troubled skin.

You can enhance the glow of your skin by drinking healthy green smoothies which will leave your organs functioning properly and in a more efficient way.

7. Green smoothies helps prevent against inflammation

Healthy, green smoothies are a great anti-inflammatory especially because of their superb alkalizing and re-mineralizing effects. This helps the body to eliminate the effects of acidic diets thus bringing a balance in pH levels.

Eating food with high saturated fat concentrations could lead to serious inflammation-related conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. However, dark leafy greens work wonders in that they help reverse these effects naturally.

To wrap things up

When making your green smoothies, consider using organic fruits and vegetables.  They are grown without pesticides or other harmful chemicals. You should also get the right blender to help break down the leafy greens into a nice, smooth blend for you and your family to enjoy, especially your children.
