Spring smoothies awaken your spirits, promote health and make you happy. These five recipes are easy and delicious. Now take your time and make your own smoothie!
Why are smoothies so healthy?
Green vegetables and juicy fruits are the basis for smoothies. In contrast to fruit juices, the whole fruit – apart from the peel and stone – is processed. Smoothies contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals – and promote our well-being. While most vital substances are lost when vegetables are heated and our digestive system is overwhelmed if you eat too much raw food, the valuable substances can be digested more easily in a blender. And if you want to control your weight, you can replace an entire meal with a smoothie. So give me a dose of health – preferably in the form of these five smoothies!
