Green smoothies are an excellent way to add more dark leafy greens to your diet.

Dark leafy greens such as kale, spinach, collard greens or chard are an excellent source of alkaline minerals and antioxidants. They also contain copious amounts of enzymes and chlorophyll.

Chlorophyll helps regenerate the blood, and has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory. It also helps fight candida, and prevents bad breath.

These amazing health benefits of chlorophyll are one of the main reasons why leafy greens are so good for our health. So we need to find ways to incorporate more of them into our diets.

I love the gingerbread flavor of this smoothie, and after experimenting with different ingredients, I’ve come up with this perfect combination. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!
