Smoothies have steadfastly become a healthy alternative to sugary desserts like milkshakes. Even though smoothies typically contain high sugar content, super food drinks provide fitness enthusiasts with a delightful post-workout treat that supplies working muscles with sufficient nutrients. The average smoothie is a blended mixture of fruits, yogurt, milk and ice. However, green smoothies feature the added benefit of raw vegetables, which effectively supplement a healthy diet.

1. Excellent Source Of Nutrients

A lot of people aren’t able to consume sufficient servings of fruits and vegetables on a frequent basis when living an active, on-the-go lifestyle. Green smoothies made from whole foods are an excellent source of several important nutrients, such as calcium, potassium, iron, zinc, vitamins A, B and C and protein.

2. Boosts Immune System

Green smoothies are rich in antioxidants and enzymes, which help boost the function of your immune system. New York Daily News dubs green smoothies a “healthy and delicious way to get an energy boost” because of the nutrients they contain.

3. Natural Weight Loss

Maintaining a healthy weight is an ongoing dilemma for those who struggle to eat right in a fast food-consumed society. Green smoothies ultimately improve digestive efficiency, which can reduce food cravings and prompt natural weight loss.

4. One Smoothie Can Satisfy Recommended Vegetable & Fruits Servings

The combination of organic fruit and raw vegetables in green smoothies help supplement nutrient-deprived diets. A green smoothie packed with nutritional elements can satisfy the daily recommendation of five servings of fruits and vegetables.

5. Relatively Inexpensive To Make

Green smoothies are relatively inexpensive and easy to make. All you need is a blender, fresh fruits, raw vegetables and a palatable recipe to enjoy the nutritional benefits of green smoothies.
