It’s not easy being green. True for Kermit the Frog and smoothies, a drink whose popularity is on the rise. Not only are the concoctions trendy, but they’re also a healthy choice with many benefits. The typical green smoothie is made with spinach, kale, or lettuce. 

The best part is that you don’t even taste the green vegetable; rather, the appetizing flavor comes from the pineapple, mango, guava, or whichever fruit is added along with the greens.

Robecks is a great place to get a green smoothie and check out what this craze is all about.

Since many people struggle to get their full serving of veggies each day, this is an easy way to do so. Green smoothies provide a long-lasting source of energy and a balanced sugar content, unlike fruits whose sugar wears off after a short burst. In addition, leafy greens are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants while at the same time helping to eliminate the amount of salt in one’s diet. 

And that’s not all. The drinks are low in calories yet high in water and fiber, so they make one full faster. The smoothies are easy to digest quickly, due to the contents being blended into liquid form. 

Green smoothies will keep the body hydrated. Rather than having to drink eight glasses of water in one day, adding more water to a green smoothie will satisfy one’s thirst, according to VegKitchen.  

Last, getting into the habit of drinking greens in smoothies actually makes people start to enjoy them and so eat them more with their meals, according to RawBlend. 

A good recipe for newcomers to the green smoothie world is one from BoredorBananas on Youtube here.
