Green smoothies are the in thing among the health and fitness crowd today, and with good reason. They have amazing cleansing properties, not to mention high levels of cancer-fighting antioxidants. What’s more, they make it easy even for people who don’t normally like fruits and vegetables to get their recommended minimum of five portions a day. This excerpt from an Express.co.uk article explains why people need this many servings of fruits and vegetables on a regular basis:

On top of this, people who eat four or more servings a day (a total of 350g) are reported to score higher in aptitude tests and feel generally happier.
Awareness of the many health benefits of green smoothies led to their becoming a real trend during the mid-2000s, and all signs are pointing to their becoming a health food industry mainstay. Smoothie and juice bars have popped up all over the world and now cater not only to fitness junkies but to all demographics—students, homemakers, corporate professionals, you name it.

Industry experts call it one of the most successful concepts of the past decade.
