This amazingly fortified Basic Green Smoothie is a new Blendtec recipe simple enough for even smoothie novices to perfect. Rich leafy greens play a vital role in your diet.

The fibre content in these lush greens lowers cholesterol and aids the body’s fat digestion system to help shed away excess poundage. Getting enough greens can even prevent vision loss, osteoporosis and colon cancer. Adding in delicious fruits like potassium-packed bananas and antioxidant-rich berries can give this already awesome smoothie a major nutrition boost! To make your own Basic Green Smoothie, add the following ingredients into your Blendtec: 3 cups cold water 3 cups leafy greens, (start with kale, spinach or romaine lettuce) 3 cups fresh or frozen fruit (bananas, blueberries or peach slices) Simply select ‘Smoothie’ on your Blendtec, or blend for about 1 minute until smooth.
