Green Smoothie that’s tasty, yummy, and healthy, you’ll drink one almost every day. It’s a combination of spinach, mango, kiwi fruit, banana, and dragon fruit, along with ginger, kale, or apple. The pitaya is sweet, so you don’t need a lot of fruit. It’s breakfast, so it’s green.
Green smoothies have about 1/3 the calories of a regular smoothie. They taste great and make you feel healthy and full of energy.

It seems so obvious now, this green smoothie thing. You add greens and fruit, maybe some ginger and mint. Then you drink it all up, and you’re healthy. Or so it seems. But back in the early nineties, when I first heard about green smoothies, it sounded crazy. Why would anyone put sugar into a drink that was just vegetables? And why would anyone drink anything that looks like spinach mixed with milk?
But at the time, many of the things we thought we knew about nutrition were wrong. The conventional wisdom was: Eat lots of fat. Eat lots of protein. Eat lots of carbs. Eat lots of cholesterol. Eat lots of salt. Eat lots of sugar. Eat lots of whatever. Eat lots of fruit, but eat fewer vegetables. Eat lots of vegetables, but eat less fruit.
Fast forward to today and it’s the green smoothie that boosts your health and immune system. Green smoothies are made with organic fruits and vegetables. The fruits used in making it are rich in water and loaded with vital nutrients, especially vitamin C which is the main natural source of detoxification.
