Green smoothies are fruit smoothies with greens blended through them. Greens are incredibly nutritious, however people struggle to eat enough of them with regard to quantity and many find them hard to digest. It has been suggested that this is due to not having enough stomach acid, and not having enough jaw strength to chew them till they are a creamy consistency. Blended greens have their structure ripped apart and are effectively pre-digested. Adding fruit makes them taste great and is also a clever way of getting more greens into your diet.
People who have introduced green smoothies in to their diets have reported many health benefits. Raw food eaters in particular have embraced this nutritional powerhouse to boost their already nutritious diet, and to find that missing element to achieving excellent health and vitality.

1.5 cups pitted cherries
2 Tbs raw cacao
2 Tbs chia

Cherries contain the tryptamine ‘melatonin’ which aids relaxation and sleep. Cacao subsequently activates tryptamines. What a partnership!Cashew Milk
