Fuel your day with green tea smoothies

‘-Once up- on a time on the planet of tea lovers and there happened to be a cup of fresh Japanese green tea that was, driven by curiosity, eager to widen its horizons with the aim of gaining deeper knowledge of the world of flavors. In order to get inspiration it decided to go on a journey that brought it to the fertile garden of thousand fruits and vegetables. After green tea and the garden´s fruits and vegetables developed a liking for each other they started dancing passionately. The result was an enormous implosion and a new species was born: the Green Tea Smoothie!’

I don´t really know if this is the true story of the green tea smoothie but anyway it is one possible theory of the birth of this wonderful drink and would explain its unique delicious taste (and why it is one of my favorite ones, too) so just stick with it ;-)

Ever heard of green smoothies? Green TEA smoothies are the enhanced version of these. Green tea smoothies combine the good features of fruits and vegetables with those of green tea in one single glass. Why not enjoy a green tea smoothie every morning to fuel your day

Unfortunately, we often neglect our body by not paying attention to get the required amount of fruits and vegetables. Fruits such as kiwis or oranges are a great source of calcium, magnesium and Vitamin C. Spinach contains carotenoids that may help protect against macular eye degeneration and help keeping blood vessels healthy to guard against heart disease and cancer!
By mixing your own green tea smoothie you can take in the vital nutrients coming from green tea and the ones that that are included in fruits and vegetables at once. For example one of green teas’s components- EGCG is a great health booster, taking care of your inner and outer beauty. For instance, it can help you to keep your cholesterol- and sugar level balanced and is helping to rejuvenate dying skin cells, which slows down the process of skin aging.
