I absolutely love green smoothies. After learning about the importance of magnesium and discovering what raw, whole foods are a great source of this incredibly important nutrient, I’ve put together this simple green smoothie recipe that is not only delicious but offers your body a healthy dose of magnesium to keep you feeling healthy, energetic yet relaxed, well rested and happy.
Kitchen Equipment for Green Smoothies
For this easy-to-make raw food green smoothie recipe, all you’ll need is a high-powered blender. I personally use and recommend the Vitamix Blender. I wrote a comparison review, comparing the Vitamix with the Blendtec that you can read here. A high-powered blender is one of the top 4 raw food kitchen tools I recommend stocking your kitchen with.
