Smoothies are one of the easiest things you could make when you're in a pinch! Green smoothies are like liquid multivitamins. Because they are already blended, they're great for your digestive system and they also help to keep you hydrated. Here's how to make them:
1) Pick your liquid
- Coconut Water
2) Choose your greens
- Spinach (mild flavour)
- Romaine (mild flavour)
- Swiss Chard
- Beet Greens
3) Choose any combo of fruits and veggies
- Apples (Love Gala apples in smoothies)
Adding lemon juice or any fruit with high levels of vitamin C increases to bioavailability of the Iron in the greens. In other words, you will absorb it better, which is really important if you are following a plant based diet.
The above ingredients are just suggestions. Have fun experimenting and finding your favourite combos!
