You may or not be a believer in the green superfoods mania that’s taken hold across North America, but there’s no debating this fact; humans have evolved to be omnivores, and our lack of incisor teeth (among other indicators) is evolutionary proof that we are more designed to be herbivores and frugivores than carnivores within the omnivorous spectrum.For those who aren’t as familiar with biological classification terminology, that means us humans should be eating MUCH more in the way of fruits and vegetables, and much LESS meat and other animal products. You’re perfectly free to be inclined otherwise and make your diet choices accordingly, but from an evolutionary perspective – it’s an indisputable fact.

That’s actually fairly common, but of course these days you’ve got quick solutions to pretty much every challenge made available for you. This is no exception, and you’ll be able to find a green superfood smoothie mix quite easily.

But are they all the same? Of course not. Like with any product, there are considerable variations in the quality level and purity of ingredients and overall constituency between every different instant greens smoothie mix. But perhaps we’re getting ahead of ourselves, and maybe some of you would just like an introduction to how to prepare a delicious green smoothie.

Right then, we’ve got an easy smoothie recipe for you right here. But before we get to it, we’ll remind you of something you’re probably well aware of. But still, it’s always worth mentioning that you need to start with a genuine quality product, and Greens+ Instant Smoothie from Genuine Health is a good choice.

It features a mere 100 calories per serving, and contains a full serving of phytonutrients and antioxidant-rich greens plus 15+ grams of whey protein and a delicious all-natural fruit flavour.

Preparing an instant green smoothie couldn’t be any easier, with no blender or other food prep implements required. Here’s how:

  • Mix 1 scoop (26.9g) of greens+ Instant Smoothie a day in 1/2 cup (125mL) of pure water or juice.
  • Shake well
  • Enjoy

It is preferable to take Greens+ Instant Smoothie on an empty stomach. If you are a new user of Greens+, begin with 1/3 scoop daily and gradually increase to a full scoop daily over a 3 week period.

Lastly, if enjoying your greens+ smoothie every morning inspires you to become more of a smoothie enthusiast, have a read over this really informative article on all of the benefits of eating deeply coloured fruits and vegetables and then incorporate them into future smoothies.
