Different Greens To Use When Making A Green Smoothie

IMG_1234

 

It’s pretty darn obvious that we love a green smoothie – we make no secret of this! We drink them after a hot yoga class, on the way to the gym, at home while we are relaxing – whenever we need a convenient little pick-me-up, green smoothies are there for us! Because we drink them so often, we have learnt that changing up the greens in our smoothies and juices can keep us from getting bored. PLUS, different greens provide different nutrients, so it pays to mix it up! It’s not all about spinach and kale, there are plenty of other greens to throw in your blender!

Some greens are better for smoothies than juices, and vice versa. Experiment to find out what you like and don’t like – at least you will be getting those extra greens along the way!

 

Namaste!
