Green Smoothies are delicious and simple to make. A basic recipe for making a good green smoothie is 50% green leafy vegetables and 50% fruit. Green Smoothies are a good way to ensure that you and your children are getting enough green leafy vegetables. Have fun creating your own recipes. You can make a smoothie with almost any fruits and veggies you have in the refrigerator.
