Healthy Green Smoothie Recipes



Why green smoothie is healthy ?

What makes green smoothies different from the normal fruits smoothies is green smoothies are besides using fruits for smoothie ingredients as normal fruits smoothies do, a green smoothie blends fruits together with the raw leafy vegetables. This green smoothie is originated in the raw foodism movement. Green smoothies are recently widely promoted for their packed-nutrients from both veggies and fruits.
