There’s just something about drinking 16 ounces of pure leafy green and fruit goodness that makes the skin glow.
Tip: Use protein and healthy fats in green smoothies if you are monitoring your blood sugar levels. Loving the smoothies, thanks for information on switching the ratio, was wondering about sugars. My husband just found out he has type 2 diabetes he began by drinking green shakes and he changed the way he eats. Okay, so I feel like a bit awkward asking this with all this healthy raw talk, but are there any natural sweeteners you would recommend for occasional smoothie use?
The Kiwi Berry Punch is a low-calorie, nutrient-dense smoothie recipe that combine the best fruits and veggies for an optimal approach to healthy weight loss.
The best part about a green smoothie–you can use a smoothie as a low-calorie meal replacement because they are full of fiber which keeps your body feeling fuller longer.
You can always limit the amount of fruit in your green smoothie by flipping our Green Smoothie Formula on it’s head.
Adding 8oz of Greek yogurt is a great source of protein, and a great addition to any recipe! Hi My husband and I have gone to smoothies while trying to cleanse him from the poison of chemo and radiation.
We suggest checking out our Goji Berry Orange Smoothie it was created by Amanda and is chockfull of superfoods and antioxidants that aid the body’s healing process and give the immune system a boost! We're Jen and Jadah, two friends raising our families on healthy, whole-food recipes mixed in with some ice cream and pizza. We've seen the amazing health benefits of green smoothies firsthand— from losing 27 pounds to getting more energy than a double shot of espresso. Researchers have identified a mechanism that allows cancer cells to respond and grow rapidly when levels of sugar in the blood rise.
The findings were published today in the journal eLife, by Susumu Hirabayashi who leads the Metabolism and Cell Growth group at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre based at Imperial College London, and Ross Cagan of the Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York.
When we eat food it’s digested into smaller molecules, such as glucose, that pass into our blood stream.
People with obesity often have persistently high levels of glucose and insulin in the blood.
In a study published two years ago, the team engineered flies to activate the genes ‘Ras’ and ‘Src’, which are activated in a variety of cancers in people.
Hirabayashi found that in flies fed a high-sugar diet, the ‘normal’ cells became insulin resistant, but the tumour cells didn’t. Disclaimer: Information presented here is for educational purposes only and not meant to diagnose or treat any disease or illness.

That is why we, Jadah and Jen, started creating recipes for green smoothies and sharing them with all of our friends— we want to help others start a healthy lifestyle too! Following this rule gives us adequate amounts of leafy greens, while still capturing the rawesome flavors of all the fruits we add! Yet for those who have been drinking green smoothies for a few weeks— this is a challenge worth going for. We love blendin’ with NutriBullet, it’s a power packed blender and perfect when blending for one!
While weight loss is not the #1 goal at Simple Green Smoothies, it can be a happy accident. If you’re monitoring your blood sugar, we always recommend speaking with your doctor to be sure that green smoothies are a good choice for you, personally.
We’re so excited to have you blendin’ with us, and love hearing that our tips are making green smoothies even more accessible! We’re so excited to hear that our recipes are a great healthy option for your husband!
I try to use fruit as a sweetener whenever possible (amen bananas), but sometimes I don’t have that option with the fruit on hand. I’ve seen a green smoothie with green apple, cucumber, spinach and kale with chia seeds.
Did you know our co-founder Jadah lost over 25lbs in three months by replacing one meal with a green smoothie? Since we are not doctors or nutritionists, we suggest that any member of our community with health concerns to speak to their healthcare provider to confirm that green smoothies and the natural sugars are okay for their eating plan.
Instead of blending 60% fruit with 40% leafy greens, blend 40% fruit with 60% leafy greens or use another ratio to meet your dietary needs.
And encourage people to maintain their strength by consuming high sugar drinks and meals while receiving cancer treatment. This may help to explain why people who develop conditions in which they have chronically high sugar levels in their blood, such as obesity, also have an increased risk of developing certain types of cancer.
As blood is pumped around the body, it delivers glucose to the body’s cells, which use it as fuel to grow.
Over time this fades to background noise and the body tunes out, or becomes ‘insulin resistant’. In fact, Hirabayashi and colleagues have previously shown that tumour cells in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster actively tune in.

Flies share many of the same genes that control metabolism and cell growth in people, so the findings from the study may be relevant to us too. The tumour cells actually became more sensitive to insulin because they turned on a metabolic switch that triggered them to produce extra receptors for insulin. These good fats are responsible for the reduction of LDL cholesterol and stabilizing blood sugar. Adding more leafy greens gives our bodies access to more of their tasty nutrients (phytonutrients, protein, vitamins, antioxidants, and more), and using low sugar fruits keeps our green smoothies lean and mean! FYI: when blending in a NutriBullet we suggest halving our recipes and adding a little additional liquid base to ensure everything blends smoothly. Talk about crash, brain fog, and an overwhelming desire to just put my head down and nap like a champ! With the gate closed, glucose can’t be absorbed efficiently so it builds up in the blood and this accumulation can ultimately lead to type 2 diabetes.
With insulin binding to many more receptors than usual, more glucose channels opened up and the tumour cells became a ‘sink’ for the glucose that had nowhere else to go in the insulin resistant body of the fly. The essential fatty acids found in flax seeds can also lower the risk of breast, prostate, and colon cancer.
This is good for preventing arthritis and reducing the inflammation associated with arthritis.
By doing this, you get all the fiber and essential vitamins without the high sugar content (which can affect people in different ways). We really try to avoid overly processed sugar options and rather reach for natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup or dates. Insulin acts like a gatekeeper: it binds to receptors on the cell’s surface and triggers a ‘gate’, or channel, to open and let glucose in. But when these flies were fed a high-sugar diet, they developed large, malignant tumours (pictured, right). But this earlier study did not explain how the tumour cells turned on this metabolic switch. Anyway, I do appreciate you recommending that I not start putting all the greens in all at once.
Summits that I recommend usually offer sessions for free viewing without the need to make a purchase. I do want to ask, though, is it OK to add protein powders or power green powders to the smoothies.
