A certified fitness trainer at once nutritionist suggested people to combine many fruits and vegetables to create healthy smoothie recipes

Eating fiber seems to be a big challenge for some people, especially to eat vegetables. Nowadays eating vegetables and fruits become a trend. Not only healthy, these raw materials can be processed to make it tastier by making smoothies.

Unlike the juice, smoothies have thick and dense texture because the material is only smoothing using blender. Some vegetables which are often to make as smoothies are spinach, beets, lettuce, and mint.  In the other side, every fruits can be used as smoothies. 

As the simple guidance, the important thing is the mixture of the vegetables and the fruits are balance. It’s important to consume the smoothies which are made from the organic fruits and vegetables. In addition, if the fruits are too many, the smoothies will not be healthy anymore, because actually fruits contain glucose.

When making fruit smoothies, people do not remove the rind. The fruit rind has a high fiber. For vegetables, green colored vegetables are good choice to make the smoothies. Actually, diet with smoothies is not recommended because it can give bad impact to the body if it is not followed by consuming the solid food and added with carbohydrate, protein, and fat. 

The smoothies are only supporting the amount of the food. The fruits and vegetables don’t replace the main intake of the solid food. But the function is only for snack between the lunch and the dinner and before the bed time.

People are not recommended to consume smoothies as breakfast. Smoothies are good to consume when lunch or dinner time. It’s better to avoid sugar either sugar or artificial sugar in making smoothies. The artificial sugar gives a bad impact to the insulin.
