What are Green Smoothies?
So, now let us get into some detail on what green smoothies exactly are. The basic idea is to incorporate as many green vegetables into your daily diet as you can. This means spinach, collard greens, Swiss or Rainbow chards, kale as well as any other fresh, green vegetables that are in season. What you do is to put all these veggies (chopped or whole) into a juicer, or a blender or an extractor, plus water and the pulpy broth that you get are called green smoothies.
