When it comes to getting more greens in your diet, it’s not always an easy task, but one really easy to way to include them is in a smoothie. One such smoothie recipe comes from Nicky, the blogger for Nicky in the Raw. In this Banana-Orange Green Smoothie recipe, not only do you get spinach, which is an excellent source of iron and lutein, but you also get Vitamin C from the oranges, potassium from the bananas and essential fatty acids from the hemp or chia seeds. If that isn’t the breakfast of champions, I don’t know what is and in fact, this is a great healthy snack alternative anytime throughout the day. Click here to check out the original recipe posting.
If you are trying to follow a high raw, gluten-free diet and love green smoothies and green juice, you might want to explore Nicky’s blog because it’s a useful resource for recipes as well as tips on how to include more raw foods and healthy meals in your diet.
