I did a bit of research to find out more as to why green smoothies over time give you more energy and this is why:
- Because the ingredients are blended up, the body can access the nutrients in the blended fruits and vegetables easier resulting in better health
- Green smoothies still contain fiber and therefore will keep you feeling fuller for longer
- Chlorophyll = Energy. Therefore the chlorophyll contained in the greens in the smoothies will give you more energy and ensure that you consume sufficient amounts of greens (if you have a minimum of 2-3 cups of green smoothie each day).
I found this recipe Jo's blog and love the raw cacao powder in it. If you are not used to the taste of green smoothies then this is perfect for you because you literally cannot taste the greens. You are drinking a thick and nutritious chocolate smoothie! Amazing recipe and so good for you; give it a shot and let me know what you think! Plus whenever I have it it keeps me going all morning it is so filling!
