Greens are one of the best ways to supercharge your health and deliver a high amount of nutrients in a single glass. Think spinach in liquid form couldn’t be very tasty? Think again! You can make your own delicious smoothies to your liking using a few key ingredients that will make you crave your morning green smoothies!
Green smoothies are a great way to increase your vegetable intake if you are finding it hard to get your daily servings of vegetables. If you aren’t used to consuming large amounts of raw plant food, it would be wise to take it easy at first and start by drinking small amounts at a time. The reason for this is that high amounts of raw fruits and vegetables can cause gas and bloating if your body isn’t used to it. After your body becomes accustomed to green smoothies, you can expect to start feeling more alert, lighter, and even smarter!
So what are these key ingredients that will make your smoothies extra-enjoyable?
Besides fruits, one of the best nutrient-rich ingredients you can add to your smoothie is Cool Cane Sugar Juice! Much like coconut water, (but with a sweeter taste) cane sugar juice can add great flavor while providing more nutrients than regular-brand fruit juices. Cane sugar juice helps with digestion, lowers cholesterol, and aids people in recovering from common illnesses such as flus and colds!
Cinnamon is another tasty ingredient that has a multitude of health benefits! Along with its anti-inflammatory properties, cinnamon is loaded with powerful antioxidants, and has even been proven to help lower blood sugar levels in patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
Finally, bananas are great to put in your smoothie to add sweetness, but are also a wonderful alternative to dairy to make the texture creamier! Bananas are loaded with potassium, which helps your muscles recover, especially if you are participating in a regular exercise program.
Here is a Green Smoothie recipe fit to make you feel like a superhero! All you need is a blender.
Superhero Green Smoothie Recipe
[makes about 1 giant jar-sized serving or 2 regular sized servings]
2.5 cups spinach (or other green leaf of your choice)
1-2 stalks of celery
1/4 of a large cucumber
½ of a pear
1 green apple
½ of a banana
1-2 slices of pineapple
½ cup Cool Cane Sugar Juice
1 tsp of cinnamon (or more to your liking)
Put all ingredients in the blender and add 4-6 ice cubes to make the smoothie extra refreshing! Pulse, blend, and shake as needed until the ingredients become a smooth liquid. You can add more cane sugar juice or water if the mixture is too thick for your liking.
Whether your health goals are to loose weight, get more nutrients, or simply just strengthen your immune system against illnesses, green smoothies can do it all! Adding ingredients like Cool Cane Sugar Juice can make these smoothies a greatly enjoyable part of your day, rather than a health “chore” to get your servings of fruits of vegetables.
