Fiber-Rich Fig Smoothie (With Lots of Greens!)

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Consuming extra greens in the diet is so easily done with smoothies and juices. Greens are so important for good health and wellness as they provide numerous beneficial phytonutrients, minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium plus they are higher in plant proteins and fats. Greens also contain Vitamin A, K, C and B vitamins. Change up your typical green smoothie by using figs! Figs are beneficial for their fiber content and have been prescribed to help sluggish bowels.
