It’s Green Smoothie Week on The Veggy Side of Me, so check back here each day for a tasty new recipe to enjoy.
Green smoothies are really simple to make, consisting of (organic) raw fruit, raw leafy greens, and water and provide many nutritional benefits: weight loss, increased energy, clearer skin, and much, much more…and do not forget that they are addictive and delicious!
NB => The recommended fruit/greens ratio is 6:4.
