Useful Hints:

 

  • Use more vegetables than fruit in your smoothies to avoid the added sugars. 

  • So your body can gain the most benefits out of these healthy vegetables and fruit it is recommended to change up the variation of leafy greens every couple to few days using a variation of Kale, Spinach, dandelion leaves, Chinese cabbage, chard, Romaine Lettuce, watercress even arugula. 

 

Other variations that can be added in:

  • Cucumbers, beet greens, parsley are other great greens to use.
