Are green smoothies good for weight loss?
It depends. A perfect weight loss smoothie contains between 250 and 350 calories and is filled with a variety of whole foods that give optimal nutrition. You always want to include a leafy green, a fruit, a source of healthy fat, and protein. You can also add other vegetables to your green smoothie.
Have you ever tried to make your own smoothie recipe? Did whatever you made almost have you throwing up?
Creating a smoothie that actually tastes good while nourishing your body really is an art. To make your life much easier, here are my best vegan green smoothie recipes for optimal health and weight loss.
