What Is Smoothie?

A pureed fruit drink, that supplies your body with fibre, minerals, vitamins, and makes it work properly. Just a few basic ingredients blended together will give you energy, good mood and last but not least it is yummi! With some leaf vegetables it may work as a real morning energizer bomb.

Leafy greens are super-healthy, packed with Vitamin A, B, C, E and K, minerals like magnesium, iron and calcium, a bunch of flavonoids and don’t forget the magical chlorophyll!

What Is Chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll -also called as green blood or liquid sunshine – is the natural plant pigment that colors grass, leaves, and the vegetables we eat. Green plants, algae and certain bacteria use the light energy of the sun to synthesize carbohydrates from CO2 and water.

Further to its cancer-preventing effect, chlorophyll kills harmful bacteria, fights bad odours in the mouth, heals gum disease, reverses anemia and cleans your liver and the digestive tract.

Leaf Vegetables and Fruits

Green smoothie is one of the healthiest food supplement for your body and skin. It works as a powerful natural detoxifying agent. Drinking it you will experience enhanced energy and smooth skin.

You only need a good blender, a big cup and quality ingredients. Try to use organic fruits and herbs from the garden or local farmer’s market. Combine them and blend until smooth.

Green smoothies are best consumed immediately after making them. Yet, they can be stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight glass jar for up to 48 hours.

Don’t forget the rule: always use unrefined, organic, fair trade products. Take care of your health and our environment. Always take allergy test – if you have reaction avoid these ingredients.

Love, Auntie
