Green Smoothie Recipes offer the quickest, and easiest, way to meet CDC dietary guideline recommendations of 5 to 13 servings (2½ to 6½ cups) of fruits and vegetables per day … or 2 cups of fruit and 2 cups of greens for a woman ingesting 2,000 calories per day. The benefits of such a diet include a lower risk for heart disease and stroke, lower blood pressure, protection against cancer, increased gastrointestinal health from indigestible fiber, prevention of age-related eye diseases, weight-loss and more. However, to receive the maximum nutritional benefit from such a diet, variety is as important as quantity … you must vary the types of fruits and vegetables you consume as often as possible. Luckily, our green smoothie recipes provided below do just that! Our recipes offer 4 cups of green goodness and a variety of healthy organic ingredients designed to maximize nutrient absorption end enhance your natural vitality. And, they taste great … which is the key to consistently meeting fruit and vegetable dietary guidelines. So, give our green smoothie recipes a try and let us know if they make you feel healthier and more energetic. And, feel free to drop us a line if you come across any healthy green smoothies that you would like to share with others here on Make Drinks!
