Healthy Green Smoothie – Full Recipe

Are Green Smoothies Healthy? You betcha they are!

Broccoli has a surprisingly high Vitamin C content – about 106mg per 100g for raw broccoli (which is what we’re using here), which is significantly more than the 52g per 100g for an orange! Vitamin C is great for supporting your immune system.

Spinach – no surprises here – has high iron content, which is used to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles. Your body also needs iron to make some hormones.

And even the humble cucumber has health benefits – the fibre is great for your gut and all that water will keep you hydrated. Finally spirulina (a type of blue-green algae) is packed with nutrients, providing 47% of your daily copper requirement – one small mineral that’s involved in myriad processes, including your energy systems, connective tissues, blood vessels, immune systems, gene activation and brain development. Wow!

So let’s get to it: How do you make a healthy green smoothie? And what ingredients do you need for a green smoothie?
