It’s all printed in your diet. Our Creamy Low-Calorie Green Smoothie is a great way to start.

When you gain weight, your body hangs on to extra fat that you may need to shed. Sometimes this happens because it feels like you would be starved from foods you can’t live without.

But hey, healthy can be tasty too.

The Many Health Benefits of Green Smoothie

Guess what?

Preparation time for healthy meals/snacks do not have to be lengthy. It can be so short, you barely noticed you did any work.

That might work in your favor. Smoothies are best had right away. It’s like vitamins and minerals on the go!

Greens clean! They are excellent in helping your bowel movements and your digestion.

Do you find it difficult to eat vegetables? Does the look of something green tells you it’s not delicious?

Adding other ingredients like the ones in our recipe can change your mind. The unique mix of avocado, lettuce, melon, and ripe bananas are all like a ‘powerhouse’ of fiber when combined.

They are the doctors of digestion.

The oasis of vitamin C that springs from this smoothie, comes from the melon, ripe banana, and lettuce. These, along with the added honey, helps the body’s system to wrestle with infections and other harmful substances.

To give it a finishing touch, we’ve added some mint, to give you that hint of stomach-soothing. It also contains fiber.

A weight-loss journey is never complete without exercise, hence the potassium from the mint, as well as bananas and buttermilk to help with muscle recovery. A healthy diet, with fitness combined, equals a healthy you!
