Green Smoothie for Health and Exercise

by Krista Davis on June 25, 2013

3.5 cups of Green SmoothieI love smoothies, especially my green smoothie that is packed with vitamins and minerals, helping me maintain my health and repair my muscles after exercising. This smoothie isn’t thick like most, it is in-between the consistency of juice and a typical smoothie. Part of the reason I love this smoothie is because I am able to get 1,070 mg out of the 3,500 mg of Potassium we need per day, helping me with cramping due to exercise, or less fun reasons. It also gives me 347% of my daily Vitamin C, 19.5% of my daily Iron, 154% of my daily Vitamin A, 35.5% of my daily Calcium,  and 13.5 g  of Protein, with only 326.5 calories for 3 1/2 cups of smoothie deliciousness.
