Often it can feel difficult to get vegetables into the diet. That or you may not fancy a huge portion of kale on the side of your steak & chips! I understand that!
The thing is, vegetables are nutrient dense and it's absolutely essential that you consume at least 5 portions a day to ensure that your body can function as it's optimal level. Getting the blend right means you'll get your required hit of vitamins and minerals.
So the easiest way to get a huge hit of health is by knocking back a smoothie every single day. The best thing is, they're really easy and quick to make. Throw ingredients in blender. Blend. Drink. It couldn't be simpler!!
I'll admit though, green smoothies can often taste a bit.... blurgh.... so I thought I'd share 5 awesome green smoothie recipes that I've found and used in the past and hope you find something that you enjoy along the way.
Leprechaun Protein Smoothie
This is a great one for low carb, high protein content and with a few pistachio's thrown in you'll get some healthy fats that'll be sure to keep you fully for longer
Kale on it's own can be quite a tough taste to swallow on it's own - particularly in a smoothie - so this is a great one to disguise the taste with a little bit of apple and banana. Trust me, it's not too bad at all!
Hey, it's an incredibly bold title but this is so fresh that it certainly gets you thinking! The herbs and lime used really give it an extra dimension and the jalapeno gives it a little punch as well. Seriously, try this!
