The National Cancer Institute along with many other health organizations, recommend at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber, phytochemicals, and antioxidants, all of which help to prevent chronic disease.

But what exactly equals a serving?

1 serving of fruit: a medium piece of fruit, 1/2 cup diced or canned fruit, 1/4 cup dried fruit, 1/4 cup fruit juice

1 serving of vegetables: 1 cup leafy greens, 1/2 cup fresh, frozen, or canned vegetables, and 1/2 cup vegetable juice

Smoothies are an excellent way to help meet fruit and vegetable goals. Adding spinach and kale to smoothies that contain fruit is the perfect way to sneak in vegetables without tasting them. A great idea for picky eaters. My Green Mango Power Smoothie provides a total of 4 servings of fruits and vegetables. Plus, it tastes amazing!! The addition of protein powder helps to keep you full and balance blood sugar. Try out the recipe below.
