Now, that the holidays are over, it's time to get healthy and get ready for summer! Everybody has probably heard, how important fruits and vegetables are to your diet, but have you ever tried Green Smoothies? I think Green Smoothies are so much easy to drink, then eating some of those fruits or vegetables that don't taste too good. Smoothies are overflowing, with nutritious ingredients and full of fiber, just what the body needs to fuel itself! So, have you ever had a Green Smoothie?
Green Smoothies for Every SeasonFor this review, I received one copy of Green Smoothies for Every Season! This is quite an interesting little book. Did you know that green smoothies, have raw leafy greens blended through them? This book concentrates on green smoothie recipes, that have been designed without dairy products, some recipes include coconut water or nut milk. By adding greens to your diet, you will get more fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, plus the alkaline value of raw greens and the benefits of blending, rather than chewing.
The ideal green smoothie, is considered to have 2 cups of fruit, 1½ cups of liquid, and 1 to 2 handful of leafy greens. Just the sound of a green smoothie, sounds like it would be bitter and taste awful, but the fruit in the smoothie, sweetens it, so it actually taste good. You should have 40 percent greens and 60 percent fruit.
This book talks about what fruits and, vegetables are in season and how to make a tasty green smoothie. The author, Kristine Miles also talks about using natural sweeteners, herbs, microgreen, sprouts, nuts and seeds in the smoothies. I have had many of the smoothies and I really enjoyed them! I have come up, with a smoothie that is perfect for me. I combine an apple, cucumber and a handful of parsley in the VitaMix. I hate cucumbers, but the apple takes that taste away. The reason I'm using those three ingredients is that cucumbers and parsley are natural diuretics, the apple just sweetens it, so it taste good.
