Drinking smoothies, especially for breakfast is a great way to fuel your day, with many of the recommended daily fruits and vegetables for your body needs. Fruit smoothies are great and most of us would go that route because, fruit smoothies are much more palatable than vegetable smoothies. Also, be careful in consuming your fruit smoothies because, they can add up the calories very quickly and for those who need to watch their sugar intake, a fruit smoothie can push your blood-sugar to the limit, especially if you use added sugars, such as agave or stevia. On the other hand, vegetable smoothies, which are mostly green, taste as a young child would exclaim, YUCKY! But, there are some solutions to these issues.
Vegetable/Green Smoothies gives us a large portion of our daily vitamins and nutrients, but the taste, WELL YOU KNOW! While fruit smoothies which also have vitamins and nutrients bring on that awesome flavor most of us desire. So, to get the best of both worlds, when making healthy smoothies, experiment a little. Mix different fruits and veggies until you find what you like. In most cases, a vegetable smoothie with either apple or pineapple for flavor will do, but again find what works for you.
Here are a couple of my favorites: Kale greens, ginger, lemon, pineapple and yogurt. (The yogurt is for creaminess). Any leafy greens, banana, ginger and ice, will do.
And this would be one of the healthiest smoothies you can make – Baby spinach, beets, ginger, celery and plain yogurt!
