What About Green Smoothies???

For years I have read about 'green smoothies' and how healthy they are for you.  Healthy is good, but tasty is better!!   Green smoothies are typically made with any variety of greens - kale, Swiss chard, spinach, lettuce etc.  along with fruits and/or flavors - apples, lemons cucumbers...the sky is the limit! 
I have tried many varieties over the years and am slowly acquiring a taste for smoothies, even green ones!  My favorite secret is to get a chocolate protein powder base (or vanilla and add cocoa)...add frozen fruit, honey and greens.  The chocolate covers any green taste and the honey adds a touch of sweetness.  I have felt a difference since drinking smoothies...more energy, the confidence in knowing you are getting some great nutrients and less calories consumed.  Drinking a few smoothies a week is a great way to digest more vegetables and nutrients.
I found this free Kindle book - 31 Green Smoothies: Heal your body and lose weight with nutritious and delicious green smoothie recipes (Healthy Smoothies).  I haven't read it yet, but look forward to learning more about how to enjoy something that brings about such good results.  Click HERE for your free kindle download.
