At Stolle, we love both fruit smoothies and smoothies filled with nourishing vegetables. It’s important to get a healthy mixture of both and today; we wanted to discuss the benefits of green-based smoothies with you.
Although all smoothies are healthy, green-based smoothies are better for you than fruit smoothies – this is based on the content of sugar (even though it’s good sugar!) in the fruit smoothies.
Our favourite ingredients:
Not sure what you’d like in your smoothie? Firstly, take a moment to think about what your body needs. What do each of our key greens offer us?
Kale; Kale is super high in anti-oxidants which makes it great for improvements to the appearance of glowing skin and wrinkles.
Spinach; It’s a great source of Vitamin K, which is an essential nutrient in responding to injuries by assisting the transport of calcium through the body. If you’re recovering from a sports injury – it’s time to add spinach to your smoothies!
Mint; The strong, refreshing aroma of mint helps two-fold; firstly, it’s great for headaches – its naturally soothing properties will relax and rejuvenate your mind. Secondly, it’s a beneficial ingredient to ease digestion. It soothes indigestion and inflammation. It’s also great if you’re frequently travel sick.
Collard Greens; Want shiny, celebrity-style hair? Collard Greens are the option for you. Packed full of Vitamin A, Collard Greens help your hair grow healthy and strong!
