What Vegetables Go Well In Smoothies?
There are quite a few vegetables that go well in smoothies, however, there are, of course, some that don’t belong in smoothies.
Here’s the list of the best vegetables that go well in smoothies:
- Leafy Greens
- Sweet Potato
What Are The Healthiest Vegetables For Smoothies?
All vegetables are healthy, but there are some that work particularly well in smoothies.
Typically, leafy greens are the best vegetables you can add to your smoothies. Followed up by beetroot, carrots, and broccoli.
It also comes down to personal preference and in some cases, dietary too. If you struggle with IBS for example, some vegetables wouldn’t work for you in smoothies.
So, pick what you like, and what vegetables your body likes, and add them to your smoothies!
Is It Good To Drink a Vegetable Smoothie Every Day?
There is nothing wrong with drinking veggie smoothies every day.
Some of us eat salads every day for example, and it’s not a problem, so there isn’t a problem with drinking vegetable smoothies every day.
In fact, it’s recommended that you drink veggie smoothies every day. That way, you can get your daily 5-out-of-your-5-a-day, and provide your body with important nutrients.
Combine your vegetable smoothies with some fruit as well, and your body will thank you.
