Should you drink smoothies when trying to lose weight?  Go to  To smoothie or not to smoothie? The skinny on blending your fruits and greens for more food for thought.

As if on cue from my “greens, go in and get moving” expose, this charming and deelish video landed in my lap and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Now, you know me. If a recipe has more than 5 ingredients, my eyes glaze over.

And Julieanna Hever’s smoothie definitely has more goodies on its roster than my simple Green Drink  Resurrection!

Yet when it comes to smoothies and blended salads (as I like to call them), as long as you only need a few seconds to rip greens up and open toss in fruit chunks, I’m in baby!

At quick glance, the plant, fruits, and other sources of phytonutrients that went into Jules’ smoothie included

  • greens: collard, kale, dandelion
  • seed: for omegas and more:  flax, hemp
  • fruit: blueberries, cherries, banana, pineapple

Did I miss anything?  Watch the video and let me know!  The point is, you can use just about anything with color and fiber and come up with a different green smoothie masterpiece every time.
