Using Green Smoothie Recipes For Healthy Diet

This morning Rocco DiSpirito was the guest of Good Morning America Recipes and introduced numerous healthy recipes using greens. This has raised the public interest in green smoothie recipes because of health benefits. Smoothies can keep cool and slip some nutrition into any diet.

Recipes from green smoothies are a wonderful way to enjoy the wholesome sweetness of fruits with the added health benefits you get from eating leafy greens. Green smoothie recipes are very popular in the raw foods movement.

How do you make a green smoothie? It is pretty simple. I personally start with one banana and then I add some berries for their gorgeous color, marvelous taste, and the spectrum of anti-oxidants they contain. I buy my berries in the frozen fruits section of the supermarket. My current favorites are wild blueberries, red raspberries, and dark sweet cherries.

Blend your banana and berries with some water and then add your greens. Good choices for mild greens that you will not even taste in your smoothie include some chopped romaine lettuce, a small head of baby bok choy, or a few handfuls of baby spinach. If you use a Vita-mix or other high speed blender, the greens get completely blended in (this is a great way to get your kids to secretly eat some healthy veggies, by the way). Kale is incredibly nutritious and is a wonderful addition to a green smoothie, too.

Now I'll now exactly what to get from the supermarket. I am always confused on what's best to try when I get there. I also have a list of vegetables as I am about to start a HCG weight loss. As for these recipes above, they could also help me get through the day.
