Quick and easy. Making your own nutrient dense smoothie doesn’t take as long as preparing most meals, giving you more time for others things.
Weight loss: When used as part of a low-fat, low-sugar diet, and vegetable smoothies provide pure nutrients to your cells and bulk from the fiber, which makes you feel full.
Healthy substitute: Smoothies’ fiber and other slow-digesting ingredients (like nuts, seeds, or yogurt) allow them to stay with you longer than coffee, soda, or other drinks.
Meal replacement: If you add small amounts of protein and even some grain to a vegetable smoothie, you can build that drink into a satisfying meal replacement.
Improved digestion: Let your blender “chew” your food and ease the burden on your digestive system while you simultaneously consume plenty of dietary fiber to ensure excellent digestion.
Reduce cravings. We all crave sweets and unhealthy foods from time to time. Reduce those cravings, or better yet, replace what you would normally splurge on with a healthy alternative.
