Let’s face it, some days you just don’t have time to eat tons of greens!
Instead of missing your greens out altogether, we have found a green smoothie is the perfect remedy to this problem. It takes literally 2 minutes to make so anyone can find time to whip one up.
This is also a fantastic solution for those of you who just can’t tolerate eating greens. Rather than struggling through them you can neck them in 30 seconds and it has the added bonus of tasting really good!
Spinach is responsible for this smoothie’s green colour and it’s a superfood in it’s own right.
Spinach has the ability to improve vitality, restore energy and improve the quality of your blood thanks to it’s high vitamin and iron content.
Iron is particularly important for your red blood cells to function properly — they help transport oxygen around your body so it’s extremely important you keep them happy!
Spinach is also particularly rich in Vitamin K, which is essential for bone health.
And before you say ‘Bleugh, I hate spinach,’ you ought to know that it is almost tasteless in smoothies. This one tastes just like vanilla!
This smoothie is also surprisingly filling for just 240 calories thanks to it’s high protein and fibre content.
So now you know this smoothie is a killer combo, give it a try! It goes down so easily you’ll probably be blitzing it up at every opportunity!
