Green smoothies–a simple, fast way to get maximum nutrition

When I was introduced to green smoothies about five years ago by my old friend Denise Sweet, I was really happy.  I had not juiced for years, but I missed the concentrated nutrition found in juice. One of the foremost raw foodists had discovered that blending fruits and greens was a simple, fast, and possibly better source of vitamins,  minerals and enzymes. And all you need is a blender.

Since then, I have had at least a quart of green smoothie almost every day.  You can find out more about green smoothies at this site: http://greensmoothiegirl.com/

Here is the basic recipe for green smoothies if you just want to get started: http://greensmoothiegirl.com/2009/12/01/here’s-the-green-smoothie-recipe-i-almost-always-use/

And here is a wonderful explanation for why green smoothies are so great: http://greensmoothiegirl.com/get-healthy/programs/green-smoothies/

I have used wild greens such as chickweed, lambs quarters,  plantain  clover , curly dock,  dandelion greens and others to add abundant and free nutrients to my smoothie.
