6. Spinach, Grape and Coconut Smoothie

Good vegetable smoothie recipes contain ingredients that are low in fat and sugar, and, therefore, low in calories, while being high in fiber, nutrition, and complex carbohydrates. This means that the vegetables take longer to digest than foods with simple carbohydrates like sugar, and that means you’ll feel full for longer.

The longer you feel full, the less you’re likely to eat throughout the day, so vegetable smoothies can help you control your eating habits in that way. If weight loss is a primary objective of your current diet, definitely start drinking veggie smoothies as part of your routine.
