Green Smoothies are one of the tastiest and easiest ways to have your greens.

In her Internationally award winning book, ‘Green for Life’, Mrs. Victoria Butenko says, “With the high oxygen content in chlorophyll and the high mineral content in green plants, greens are the most alkalizing food that exists on our planet. By including green smoothies in our diet, we can keep our bodies alkaline and healthy.”

Other benefits of green smoothies which have been observed by people around the world:

  • Promotes natural weight loss and gain

  • Increases consumption of nutrition available in fruits and greens

  • Easily digested and better nutrients assimilation.

Blending ideas:

Important:

-Blend only those fruits and greens together which would taste well.

-Change your green preferably everyday (please refer to Green for Life by Victoria Butenko)

-Always serve a well garnished smoothie. We love it as our morning or anytime meal.

-Always chew your green smoothie even it is liquified, to help it digest even better.

-Some greens may have higher content of oxalates. So take time to learn about this more.

– While making your smoothies, always start with more fruits and lesser greens. As you start loving it’s flavours, slowing increase your quantity of greens in the same recipe.

-Greens like mint, basil, oregano etc are herbs and must be used in much smaller quantities. The purpose of Green Smoothies is to consume Green Leafy Vegetables in a delicious way.
