My Top Tips for Making the Best Green Power Smoothies Ever

Here are a few amazing tips that will help get you on your way to making delicious tasting green smoothies.

* Use frozen fruit instead of ice to give your smoothies more flavor. Frozen banana gives your smoothie a delicious rich and creamy taste. Frozen fruits are also great when fresh fruit isn’t in season.
* Ripe bananas have more sugar and taste better, so use bananas that have gone slightly spotty.
* The fresher the fruit, the better the taste.
* Use oranges, peaches, mangoes and other brightly colored fruits to liven up your green smoothies with some color—this is especially helpful since we eat with all of our senses!
