Green smoothies are healthy shakes or smoothies with green vegetables blended into them. A smoothie is very simple to make but the benefits to your health are enormous. There is even a green smoothie acne treatment, which is a great way of curing pimples naturally. Leafy greens like spinach are blended with frozen or raw fruits with ice and water. The usual ratio is around sixty percent of fruits to forty percent green vegetables, which is combined for balanced nutrition/flavor ratio. Although extremely nutritious, there are people who find it hard digesting smoothies. Since green leafy veggies already have their structure torn apart because of the blending and are in essence pre digested, the problem is ascribed to not having enough jaw power and stomach acid. The addition of fruits make smoothies taste great and is an excellent way of including plenty of fruits in your diet, which many people lack.

Because of the popularity of green smoothies these days, companies have begun manufacturing them along with green juice drinks. The products they sell can be pasteurized but most people still prefer to make fresh smoothies on their own for health reasons. If you are going to make them yourself, you should consume all of it once it warms to room temperature, although you can make it last for two to three days if you store it in fridge. Blend the ingredients for thirty to 45 seconds, starting low and then gradually increasing to high setting.
