As someone who doesn’t like to eat vegetables, I knew I needed to find a solution. A lot of people have trouble getting their daily requirement of veggies. Green smoothie is a great alternative for those who want to get the health benefits from vegetables without having to consume it the old fashion way. When you turn veggies this way, the taste of the greens is hidden by the taste of the fruit.

There are many benefits you can get from green smoothies:

#1 Help in weight loss

Green smoothies are low in calories and will provide you with a lasting source of energy. Green smoothies provide nutrition, vitamins, minerals, healthy carbohydrates, and fibres that you need to lose weight without starving yourself.

#2 Provide a lot of nutrition

The amount of vitamins depends on what green smothie you’re taking. Most fruits and vegetables are high in vitamin A and C. Green smoothies are also high in antioxidants and phytonutrients. Giving your body best defense for disease and natural substances that are essential for your health and fitness.

#3 Easy to digest

Smoothies are quicker to digest because your blender already does the work in blending and liquefying the fruits and vegetables. Your body doesn’t need to work hard to break down the food and extract the nutrients.

#4 Increased fiber intake

Green smoothies are healthier than fruits and vegetables juices because unlike using a juicer, smoothies use the whole fruit and vegetable so you get all the fibre and other nutrition. Fibre is essential for your colon health.

#5 Reduce cravings

Because when your body is filled with green smoothies you will feel full and healthier. Green smoothies reduce cravings for junk foods, and unhealthy sweets, salt, and fats. Eventually, you will crave healthier foods.
