Green tea is an ancient ingredient that offers numerous health benefits. Herbal teas and medications were used in ancient times when people had no access to modern medications, and they’ve worked quite good. Green tea has a unique nutritional profile, and can treat a variety of diseases and conditions. However, we’re not going to talk about the tea today – instead, we’re going to show you how to prepare a unique green tea smoothie that will give your health a significant boost.
The incredible smoothie will regulate your cholesterol levels, your blood sugar levels, provide your body with antioxidants, improve your central nervous system and help you lose weight as well. Of course, adding certain fruits in the smoothie will further improve its benefits – you can add some avocado for a nice portion of healthy fats, or grapes and spinach for a nice antioxidants boost.
Here’s how to prepare the delicious green smoothie:
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 ½ cup green tea
- 3 cups frozen grapes
- 1 avocado
- 2 teaspoons honey
Just like with any other smoothie, simply mix the ingredients in a blender and you’re done. You should drink the smoothie right away, or refrigerate it for a day and drink it cold. We suggest drinking the smoothie along your breakfast to maximize its potential and get the most of its unique properties. Even if you decide to skip breakfast, this smoothie will replace it. It’s a perfect breakfast-in-a-cup which will provide your body with essential nutrients and improve your overall health.
Besides avocado, spinach, grapes and honey, you can try other combinations as well. You can add coconut water, yogurt, kefir, cereal, flakes or blueberries, and just about any other fruit you can think of. The green tea smoothie works great with almost all fruits, and will give your body the kick it needs in the morning.
