What are the Benefits of Green Smoothies?

Green smoothies are great for digestion—the green leafy vegetables supply your body with essential minerals and vitamins to your breakfast. Fiber-rich vegetables make your smoothie more filling for a morning energy boost.

A green detox smoothie is rich in B vitamins like foliate, niacin, and vitamin B6, promoting a healthy nervous system and helping your body release energy from food.

Feel free to experiment with different fruit chunk toppings to your green smoothie for extra character and taste.
