Are Green Smoothies Really that Good for You?

Green smoothies are a great way to get all of your vegetables, fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins for the day in one shot. Unlike juicing, green smoothies contain the plant fiber, which helps your digestion.

If you're wondering how to get more vegetables in your diet, green smoothies are a great option. Those who are worried about tasting the vegetables can balance out leafy greens with citrus to neutralize the "flavor."
