Green smoothies or green smoothies : recipes translated and some tips for fruits and vegetables

Since the first post on the green smoothies or green smoothies (with leafy greens), many of you have to send me your questions and requests for the recipe (translated into French) by e-mail. At the beginning I started to respond to each of the mails, but finally all in for everyone to enjoy (and stop the copy-and-paste to every new mail).

Among the questions that I have received, the one that often came back for the fruits and vegetables used. So here are a few answers :
In american recipes, the “kale” is often. It is in fact a cabbage, near the kales with leaves of a dark green color and all jagged, full of vitamins and minerals. It is a real star in the united States, it is all the rage in Germany and arrives in France, even if it is still difficult to find. There are a few addresses where to find it in Paris, if you have more questions please do not hesitate to share them in the comments.
In the absence of kale in our green smoothies we can use any other green leafy vegetable fees. Personally is often leaves of fresh spinach , or chinese cabbage that come up in mine.

For fruit, of course it is necessary to use products of the season, but we can cheat by using frozen and it is even recommended to provide the amount of cold that it takes into smoothies. At home, I cut often the bananas into slices and I keep it in the congélateur in boxes appropriate boxes large cold Tupperware are perfect for this). For the rest, I trust my friend Picard Frozen mangoes, pineapple, melon, blueberries, and raspberries (by the way, choose the same for the chips, raspberries perfect in smoothies) .

The other question that is often income relates to revenue : how to have the recipes in French ? Where to find recipes ? etc, To make it simple, in reality, you can imagine your own recipes, from the basis of the proportions given in this article. But following the challenge on the website Simple Green Smoothies, it actually receives a selection of recipes each week. The basic rule is always the same : first blend the liquid and vegetables and then add the fruit and mix again. Here are the translations :
