Easy Pale Green Smoothie

This simple, quick and easy vegan smoothie is ideal for warm evenings and a perfect way to pack more vegetables, fruits and nuts into your daily quota. Plus, it tastes amazing!! Unlike the other green smoothies, leafy vegetables are not added to this smoothie. If you wish you could throw a handful of spinach or kale leaves or any other leafy vegetable of your choice into your blender when you make this.

This smoothie is rich in fibre, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, vitamins and other minerals. Both celery and cucumber are low in calories, making this smoothie ideal as a replacement for an evening snack and the mild flavours of this smoothie go well with kids. Green grapes are surprisingly good for those who have diabetes as the sugar in green grapes absorbs slowly into the bloodstream. Plus, resveratrol found in grapes may offer additional help in managing blood sugar levels. Regular intake of this smoothie may help in reducing inflammation, promoting gut, brain, bone and heart health, supporting weight loss and blood sugar balance, and reducing blood pressure and cholesterol.
