A green smoothie designed for the health of the human body.
Most of us do not consume enough greens. A molecule of chlorophyll closely resembles a molecule of human blood. According to teachings of Dr. Ann Wigmore, “consuming chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion”.
Green Smoothies are easy to digest, since most of the cells in the fruits and greens have already been ruptured, and do not need to be broken down by the digestive system. The nutrients can be absorbed immediately, from your mouth on down. And they are delicious! When you start drinking them your body begins to crave them.
Many people think green smoothies are the same as juices, but there is one important difference: green smoothies still have fiber in them, which is important for our elimination system.
Juicing greens can also increase your preparation and cleanup time, because you have to dispose of the raw matter that has been separated by the juicer. By blending everything together, it makes a green smoothie both easier to prepare and better for your body.
The best recipe for green smoothies involves 60% fruit and 40% greens. Fresh and organic produce is important for your long-term health, and that of the planet as well as for improving the taste of your smoothie.
When paired with a helpful probiotic, like kombucha or coconut water kefir, green smoothies can naturally support a healthy digestive system. We’ll be serving them here every morning with delicious local tropical fruits.
