Green smoothies tend to have a higher vegetable content and normally rate somewhere between “healthy” and “tastes-awful-but-I-hope-its-doing-me-good”.
Lots of people work themselves into quite the tither about these, and claim they can heal almost any ailment … if not actually raise the dead!
For me – there’s no point in eating smoothies if you don’t enjoy them. So I work with the ingredients until I find something which is both good for you as well as pleasurable. This normally means adding some fruit – but not always.
I’ll add a variety of recipes here – and let you make up your own mind. Remember, consider these recipes the starting point – not the destination … and make them your own.
