    Their popularity is largely due to being a long lasting source of energy that is easy to digest and also hydrating. Eating 2 to 6 cups of fruits and vegetables daily is linked to reduced risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, decreased  risk of stroke, cancer and eye disease prevention and reduction in intestinal inflammation.

    There is no “one” recipe for green smoothies, so you can continue to change it up every time you get bored or with seasonal fruits and vegetables.

    For my novice green smoothie drinkers, how do you make the PERFECT green smoothie?  Easy, use the 2+2+2 rule and never, ever under any circumstances refer to a green smoothie as “juicing.”

    You can also use frozen fruit and add omit ice.  Other fun boosters are hemp, chia and flax seeds, coconut oil, protein powder, acai berry, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, honey, agave nectar, cocoa, peanut butter or other nut butters.

    The trickiest part of making the perfect green smoothie is not what you choose to put in it, but having a blender than can handle the task.  With a Blendtec Designer 725 and Twister Jar, I do minimal prep work, press the magical “smoothie” button and the Blendtec pre-programmed cycle does the rest, resulting in a perfectly blended green smoothie.

    Other blenders require peeling, chopping into bite-size pieces and multiple steps to get a chunky “smoothie.”  Here is the recipe for my Favorite Fall Green Smoothie.
