Most mornings, (when I have time), I make myself a Green Juice or Green Smoothie.
What is a Green Juice?
Green Juice is a deliciously blended drink of a few ‘Green’ vegetables, that are so beneficial to maintaining a healthy diet.
How to make Green Juice?
It’s simple really. All you need are the ingredients, and your all set to go!
First, ensure you have a blender or a juicer – depending on whether you make a smoothie or a juice.
Then you can prepare your drink by putting the following things into the blender:
- Half Glass of Water
- One Teaspoon of Honey
There are other vegetables that you can add to your drink, such as lettuce, celery, broccoli or green apples. You can always add a bit of spice to it by adding half a ginger or squeezing a lemon on top.
Then simply blend, and drink!
What are the benefits?
There are a LOT of benefits of Green Juice. I drink mine on an empty stomach in the mornings because this drink is full of fiber, antioxidant-rich and vitamin-rich nutrients for your body. So whether you want to detoxify your body, lose weight, or maintain a healthy diet, this is the perfect drink for you!
This is by no means a meal replacement, so its recommended to get some protein into your body about 30-45mins after the drink.
Some of the benefits include:
- Important nutrients for your body
- Detoxification for your body
- Lowers Cholesterol
- Improves Digestive System
- Great for your skin (makes it more vibrant)
- Gives you Energy
- Helps lose weight
