Green Smoothie Recipes

green smoothieBeing as we are having a bit of a raw food theme this week, I thought it would be a good idea to continue with it, so today it’s a slight twist by having some green smoothie recipes.

These are a great way to get your greens if you don’t like eating vegetables, or your children aren’t that keen either on eating them. The great thing about making smoothies is you can add different ingredients to alter the taste and it makes experimenting more fun, after all food should be fun and not a chore.

    Green smoothies seem to be a big thing at the minute, I have seen someone else promoting herbs and other greens in smoothies I have to say that although I have not tried it I definately think it sounds like a good idea
