Brighten Your Day With These Delectable Green Smoothies

Tropical green smoothie
Between demanding lifestyles and busy work schedules, it can be incredibly difficult to maintain a good diet.
Studies suggest that you need seven to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. In the event that you can’t envision yourself casually snacking of two whole heads of broccoli or eating 10 whole bananas (unless you’re this girl) each day, here are some awesome green smoothies that pack a punch in both flavor and nutrients.

The Green Dream

½ cup grapefruit juice
½ cup aloe vera juice
½ an apple
1/3 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt
3 bunches of microgreens
The Green Dream will score you over 100% of your daily vitamin A and C intake, over half of your necessary calcium, and two grams of dietary fiber.

The Temple Tonic

3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup coconut water
1 banana
1/3 cup yogurt
3 bunches of microgreens
The Temple Tonic’s got you covered. Chock-full of potassium and electrolytes, this drink will have you feeling energized. Best yet? Only 490 calories!

The Cure-All

¼ cup beet top microgreens
½ cup pea shoots (tons of vitamin C and adds a great sweet taste)
1/8 cup oregano (good for fighting colds)
¼ cup radish microgreens (good for reducing fever and adds a beautiful sharpness)
1 frozen banana
½ mango, cubed
6 cups orange juice
1 cup plain yogurt
Squirt of honey
Take that, cold! The Cure-All will have you feel better in no time, packing your body full of vitamin C, oregano (which helps fight colds), and antioxidants.
Not only are these smoothies healthy, but the microgreens used in these recipes are quite easy to grow, and take as little as a week to produce in an Urban Cultivator.
