Low Fat Green Smoothie Recipe

By WLR's Food Information Executive, Laurence Beeken

Green Smoothies are healthy shakes, normally low in fat, often incorporated into healthy eating or weight loss plans. The calories in these weight loss smoothies tend to be low.  

By blending green leafy vegetables such as spinach with fruit, water, fruit juice or ice you can easily make a healthy, low calorie drink.  A typical ratio of ingredients in a green smoothie is about 60% fruit to 40% leafy greens, to give a good balance of nutrition.
