The Yummiest Smoothie Recipes You Won't Believe Are Full of Greens
The 10 freshest, fastest and tastiest ways to get your daily dose of veggies
Tastes like: A creamy, slightly sweet fruit smoothie with just a hint of nut
Benefits: "This smoothie is screaming with potassium provided by the banana and the coconut water," says nutritionist Bonnie Taub-Dix, MA, RD, CDN, owner of Better Than Dieting. "The nuts add fiber, protein and healthy fat to help keep you satisfied. Berries are low in calories and so tasty, and leafy greens supply iron and folic acid."
Create your own:
2-3 cups leafy greens, like kale, collard greens, chard or romaine
1 cup of frozen mixed berries
1/2 teaspoon citrus zest
Squeeze of citrus juice
2 tablespoons raw almonds or walnuts
1 cup of coconut water
1 tablespoon of raw honey
Toss all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Makes one serving.
