Some Benefits of Green Smoothies

BenMeet Ben. Ben is autistic. He does not like eating his greens. Well, didn’t like eating them until we made this green smoothie! Now he frequently asks for it as a treat!
How cool is that?!

You can enjoy the benefits of green smoothies too! Blending the fruit and veggies is a great idea because when you blend it well most of the cells in the greens and fruits are ruptured, making the nutrients easy to absorb! You start getting nutrients the moment you put it in your mouth! And to top it off, because you blended it you’ll also be getting the fiber! This is wonderful for your digestive tract!

The best tasting ratio for green smoothies is about 60% fruit and 40% greens. (Spinach is a family favorite around here, along with Chard. Kale is too, but has a stronger flavor.) The fruit will keep the smoothie sweet, while the greens will balance it out so it’s not overpowering.

Green smoothies are fun and easy to make! They make great memories for kids too! Even babies like green smoothies! (6 months and older please)
