Green Smoothie Recipes for Beginners

Green Smoothie Recipes for beginners  Getting started with green smoothies can be daunting. With so many choices and exotic ingredients to choose from, it can seem a little overwhelming, especially if you’re also learning a whole new diet. The whole point of a smoothie is that it’s quick and easy to make while incorporating healthy fruits and veggies into your diet

In this post, I’ve put together five simple-to-make green smoothie recipes for beginners that can be made in a flash and have inexpensive, easy to find ingredients.

Aside from being delicious, all of these recipes are designed to help you avoid blood sugar spikes, which can lead to weight gain and other metabolic issues like Type 2 Diabetes over time.

If you choose dairy as the first ingredient, just make sure you stick with full fat versions like half-and-half or heavy whipping cream. For more info on why that’s important to weight loss, see my post “The Best Diet Plan for Weight Loss”.
