Even if you love smoothies, it's possible you haven't heard of green smoothies before. If you haven't tried one of these vitamin rich smoothies, well, you're in for a treat. It's possible you'll even convert your whole family into eating more healthy green veggies.

The first thing you may be wondering is what in the world a green smoothie is. There is no exact answer as there many different recipes to choose from. At the very basics green smoothies are any fruit smoothie that also includes green leafy vegetables.

Most people know that eating greens is good for you. Even so, there are many people who don't find or make the time to include them in their diets. This is due to a variety of reasons; one of the most common is time restraints.

But with green smoothies, eating your greens becomes as simple as drinking something. It could not get any easier than that, and really, who doesn't have time to drink? You'll enjoy the flavor and you'll be getting a lot of excellent nutrients.

One of the best times to drink a green smoothie is at breakfast. You'll have more energy early in the morning thanks to those vitamins and minerals.

You'll be amazed at the lack of fatigue and the feeling of focus you'll get. As an added bonus they help to regulate your digestive system as there is so much fiber.

If you are at all familiar with green smoothies, you probably already know what goes in them. However, in case you aren't quite sure, I have included a few of the ingredients that are usually in them.

Here are some greens you could use: Chard, Cale, Spinach and Lettuce
