  1. They all seem like really great smoothie recipes. I’ve only had a handful of smoothies in my life, as I rarely buy fresh fruit and vegetables. Does blitzing the fruit and vegetables mean the body can break down the sugars faster, like how oranges are better for you than than orange juice?

    1. Unwanted Life, this is a great question. Sugar (fructose) is one of the nutrition components of fruits and vegetables. They are also loaded with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Blending then increases the surface area and helps with the bioavailability of most nutrients and consequent better absorption. Smoothies are a great way to include a large number of fruits and vegetables in a liquified form. Bear in mind, everyone’s digestive system is different.

  2. Hi thanks for the post…They all sound really great, I am going to have to try the Easy Merry Berry Smoothie it just sounds so amazing. I can’t wait to try to make it for these hot summer days we are having. I can freeze it into ice pop’s that i know my kids will love.
