Good Morning :)
Here's a video I made showing you just how easy it is to blend up a nutritious, satisfying and delicious green smoothie. Below that are instructions for making them in a kitchen blender. You don't have to use a high speed blender, if you don't have one, don't let that stop you.
Green smoothies have worked their magic on me ~ it's all about getting your greens in! Once I began adding the greens into my diet, my palate began to change slowly but surely!
I began to lose my taste for sugars and carbohydrates,without any effort. I found myself replacing them with more fruits and veggies, enjoying them like I never had before. It was a change that occurred gradually and naturally and helped me to become the healthier, happier gal I am today!
I am 116 lbs lighter and feeling fantastic :)
Today I use a Vitamix , which is a high speed blender, but I didn't start with one in the beginning. It's not necessary to have the Vitamix! Your smoothie will just have a creamier consistency and you don't have to chop up your fruit. Using a regular kitchen blender is fine. You should chop up any firm fruits in smaller pieces if you are using your kitchen blender.
