Green smoothies are trending. This drink made of green leafy vegetables (spinach, lettuce, kale, arugula, chard, parsley…) is a vitamin injection that will provide you energy and will help you eliminate toxins from your body.
The “green smoothies” can be easily combined with different types of fruit and a liquid base such as milk, water, coconut milk, soy milk, almond milk…
You decide the ideal time to take it as this smoothie is suitable for many occasions such as breakfast, for before a workout, as a snack or for after a run… Also, making these smoothies is quite simple. You only need two cups of vegetables, two cups of fruit and one cup of liquid. You can also add an extra ingredient such as chia, acai, turmeric or maca.
The “green smoothies” are a great source of antioxidants and help to fight free radicals. They’re also rich in minerals, vitamins, micronutrients, and have a high detox and nutritional value.
We recommend four combinations that are ideal for putting a green touch to your diet, eliminate toxins and detox before the summer that is just around the corner.
A classic: kiwi and spinach
Kiwi is rich in vitamin C and an inexhaustible source of fiber. It is also diuretic so it’ll be of great help for your detox plan. Combined with spinach, you will get the perfect smoothie, rich in vitamins and minerals. Spinaches contain a lot of water, are very nutritious and low in calories.
A green-red smoothie: strawberries, oranges, and lettuce
Strawberries are great for detox and are very low in calories, they have even fewer calories than lemons or watermelons. Combine them with the vitamin C found in oranges and the satiating effect and fiber found in lettuces to get a healthy and colorful smoothie for this summer.
A super “green smoothie”: mango, banana, and kale
Kale is a great antioxidant and is known for its vitamins A, C, K and calcium, potassium and folic acid. We can combine the intense green color with a more tropical touch such as mango and banana.
Two small and powerful ingredients for your smoothie: grapes and lettuce
More than 80% of a grape is water, it is a fruit with powerful antioxidant and detox effect. The lettuce provides a high dose of vitamin C and iron. Together, they are an invincible and simple combination to get a unique “green smoothie”.
