Healthy can be a much debated term with very differing definitions. In our family we don't follow one specific diet. We don't eat exclusively vegan, paleo, or low-carb. However, we try to eat real (non-processed), nutrient-rich food as much as possible.
I think we can all agree, no matter what diet you follow and what you consider healthy, we all can use more vegetables! I love the concept of 'half your plate' - at every meal, half of the plate should consist of fruits and vegetables.
No problem, at least for lunch and dinner. If you are used to a regular Western breakfast however, incorporating vegetables into the first meal of the day may be a challenge. Vegetable smoothie recipes are a perfect solution. You can blend up veggies together with delicious fruit, and you'll never even taste them.
To give you more guidance and inspiration, I collected the best green smoothie recipes from Leelalicious and from fellow food blogger friends.

Some of the healthiest ingredients to include in a smoothie are leafy greens, vegetables, and fruits. These provide essential nutrients, vitamins, and fiber, contributing to a balanced diet.
Smoothies can be part of a healthy weight loss plan if they are made with nutritious ingredients and portioned appropriately. Including ingredients such as leafy greens, fruits, and low-fat dairy can help create filling and nutritious smoothies.
Drinking healthy smoothies every day can be beneficial as long as they are balanced and provide a variety of nutrients. It's important to ensure they don't become the sole source of nutrition and that they complement a well-rounded diet.
Yogurt and milk are common ingredients in smoothies, providing creaminess and additional nutrients like protein and calcium. However, alternatives like plant-based milk or water can also be used based on dietary preferences and restrictions.
