Why drink a green smoothie?
We started drinking green smoothies about two years ago when we got our Vitamix Blender. Mainly because our diet is high in protein and protein makes our bodies acidic, the green leafy vegetables help to balance out those levels. Also I was generally feeling like I was lacking in energy, green leafy vegetables are a great source of B vitamins that are essential to feeling healthy and energetic. Drinking a green smoothie a day is also a great way to boost your vegetable intake, we generally drink ours as a dessert after dinner, or it we are working out I will drink mine straight after the workout as a post workout drink.
