You are hungry, tired and need some kick start in the morning? … at noon? … in the afternoon? Take a green smoothie, it doesn´t only taste delicious but is pure nutrition and super healthy! But how to get a fresh smoothie? And very quick? The easiest way is to take a drink at the next Juice or Smoothie Bar. If you happen to live in the South of Austria, in or near Graz, you get the best and freshest juices and smoothies here. If you have something special in mind, ask charming Kathi at the bar – she mixes the perfect smoothie for you. And she is not only charming and has a beautiful classical face (she reminds me of Rosalba Carriera´s pastel Primavera/The Spring) but even reveals for Medici&More her favourite green smoothie recipe.
Drinking green smoothies you get a huge amount of vitamins in a perfect way – they are raw and unprocessed – that means, they contain the full power of everything. It is an easy and great way to “eat” many different veggies without even realizing it. In green smoothies the taste of the greens is hidden by the taste of the fruit, you will not even notice that veggies are in. This is very important to know for parents – children love them (even with lettuce, spinach, Swiss Chard etc in). To find a good answer for the kids why green smoothies are so intensely green tell them a story. I would say: it is an elixir that makes you enormously strong, clever and wise.
If there is no juice or smoothie bar nearby and you want to prepare your own healthy drinks you should have a juicer, a blender or a food processor. Who owns one will probably know how to make a fresh and delicious drink. If you do not have one and want to buy one click here. You will find a wide range of these very special household aids there. Even if you live on a budget. Buy one, make smoothies and enjoy them. Cheerio!
