One of the saddest aspects of the vegetarian lifestyle is the easy fad nature of it and a lot of its dietary parts. This means that as soon as someone comes up with something that genuinely works to improve health using a vegetarian method, there’s an initial positive response, followed by a swarm of people rushing to it, and then leaving in droves once a new fad appears. Right now, one of these fads is the green smoothie, but while it may ultimately get left behind, that would be a huge mistake. Here are the top 5 benefits of drinking green smoothies.
5. They Taste Great
A lot of people won’t even need to move past the first item here on the list as it’s arguably the most important. Do green smoothies taste good? Absolutely. The difference between juice and a lot of smoothies comes down to a general mixture of fruits and vegetables equaling a ratio of 60% fruits to 40% veggies, meaning the sweet fruit taste will be the most noticeable while the vegetable taste will help temper said sweetness so it’s not overbearing. You’d be surprised how regularly you can drink them for any meal of the day, so they make a great breakfast option.

4. Simpler Than Regular Meals
The total process of making a green smoothie- clean-up included- is usually under five minutes. All you need to do is pull out a good blender, stick in the fruits and veggies you’ll be mixing up, add in some yogurt and the like, and you’re ready to start consuming. That simple! Few other meals, vegetarian or otherwise, are as streamlined as this. And afterward, just a quick rinse and all clean. Even better, green smoothies are portable, so you can make them and head out the door.
