Are Green Smoothies actually good for you?

Spring Green Smoothies are wonderfully healthy and nutritious. They are full of powerful greens such as kale, spinach, dandelions, and chard; all of these ingredients are high in vitamins A, C, and K as well as antioxidants that fight against cancer and other illnesses.

These dark leafy greens can be blended with protein powders, whey, fresh or frozen fruits, and additional green powders making them even more nutritious.

What are good greens to put in a Spring Smoothie?

Any healthy greens can be used in this smoothie, but all greens offer unique properties. Spinach is a popular choice because of its mild taste. Kale, collard greens and chard can also be added to smoothies, but will need to be paired with sweet fruits to help disguise the bitter flavors. Dandelion greens are another fantastic plant that can be added to your diet, but they are also bitter in taste.
