The Super Green Smoothie by Gymbags and Gladrags
I love a green smoothie, but the other day I challenged myself to make the greenest smoothie I’ve ever made. This all came about because I was out of bananas and berries, which are the usual fruits I add to my smoothies so I had to experiment. I also wanted to try out the Bioglan Superfoods Superfoods powder which is packed with 81 nutritious ingredients.
Green smoothies help to pack in more nutrients and balance your blood sugars better than fruit based smoothies, so I challenge you to add a handful (or two) of spinach or kale to your next smoothie. I’ve seen smoothie recipes that are basically sugar bombs, such as mixed berries, a banana, diced mango, grapes and topped off with orange juice. Please, don’t do this to yourself. Eat the fruit instead, skip the orange juice and make a green smoothie instead.
For this smoothie I used only green ingredients and with the inclusion of the Bioglan Superfoods Supergreens powder, I think it’s the healthiest smoothie I’ve ever made! Bonus: I’m happy to report it doesn’t taste like grass. Grab your blender and whip up this smoothie for a boost of nutrients.
