Healthy Vegetable Smoothie Recipes
If the idea of a veggie smoothie doesn’t sound all that appealing, you’re not alone. Vegetables generally don’t have near as much sugar as fruit and they tend to have an earthier flavor. Add that to the fact that we usually associate them with savory dishes and salads and the idea of a vegetable drink just doesn’t sound good.
Many people have that assumption, but the fact is, a lot of people drink veggie smoothies and love them. They can be hard to get used to at first, which is why you should start by adding fruit to mask the flavor, but in many cases you can’t even taste the veggies. Some, such as avocados, actually add a pleasant creaminess that is delicious when blended with some nut milk and honey.
Smoothies are a great way to get your daily veggie intake, especially if you’re not a fan of eating them. Almost any vegetable can be added to a smoothie as you’ll see from these recipes. Don’t be afraid to experiment; chances are if you like to eat it, it is probably fine to drink as well.
