Introducing our shenanigans of healthy smoothies with an overloaded sneak peek! Many more to come soon! Say hello to the world of Slurp Slurp, shall we!!
It’s very important to have the right mix of fruits and veggies in your smoothies, especially when you are new to it and want it to be palatable. So, I suggest using spinach as the preferred green in your first few smoothies, and eventually introduce kale into your routine. This smoothie is a right balance of fruits and vegetables, and each ingredient contributes to the health benefit aspect. With spinach as the low-calorie, protein-iron bundle and the apples, carrots and cucumbers acting as vitamin-packed antioxidant agents, this smoothie is just a kick-ass combination to strengthen your immune system – something perfect to start your week with! Sluuuurp!!
