- "MAGICAL" GREEN POTION -

DSC 9770

Nowadays lifestyle is fast and dynamic. There is no time to eat, rest or literally enjoy things. That's how S M O O T H I E S became very popular and they are a must to many of us! 

Smoothies are great for a quick breakfast, an easy and satisfying way to refuel after working out or just a perfect afternoon refreshing delight. 

Since I love everything about smoothies, I decided to share how and what I use in my daily smoothie recipes. 

First, let's briefly go through some of the vital reasons why to drink smoothies & about top benefits of green smoothies:  

1. Simple and quick to make, which is very important for our fast lifestyle. The only equipment you need is a blender;

2. Great way to eat different veggies without even realizing it. The taste of the greens is hidden by the taste of the fruit, so you don't even notice the veggies are there; 

3. Drinking green smoothies on a regular basis provides all the nutrients to your body for a natural detoxification and cleanse;

4. Easy to digest, because the ingredients are alredy blended and liquified;

5. Green smoothies will keep you hydrated and energized.

So much good things wrapped in one will for sure make you start drinking this "magical" green potion. ;) 

Whenever I'm putting a new green smoothie recipe together I use a basic smoothie formula: 

  • 2 cups greens
  • 2 cups fruits
  •  2 cups liquid base 

+  supplements for extra nutritional BOOST:

  • spirulina
  • hemp protein powder
  • nuts
  • cacao
  • acai powder
  • flax, hemp & chia seeds
  • coconut oil.

MANGO COCONUT SMOOTHIE

Hey loves! Let's start the day with this delicious tropical smoothie based on mango. I have been a big fan of mango since I can remember, I could eat it every day. It's not just tasty but mango fruit is also rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and it's a great antioxidant for your body. Also today's smoothie is special because usually I use spinach, but this one is without it. Just pure mango & coconut taste! Mmmmm it's so delicious that the smoothies I made for my friends were gone in a second! You should really try it out! ;) DSC 0616DSC 0738DSC 0766DSC 0797

MORNING SUNRISE SMOOTHIE

DSC 9770

Hey, green smoothie lovers! I've prepared another very simple and tasty smoothie recipe for you! For all of those who are not really a smoothie type, maybe first try to read my previous article "magical green potion", where I'm writing about why to drink smoothies & about top benefits of green smoothies. I believe that after finding your own way of mixing different ingredients you will start to love them as much as I do! The best thing about it is that you bring into your body various important ingredients and nutrients, and you don't really taste them in smoothies. I believe life is much like smoothies, you get out what you put in!
