Green Smoothies

Posted by Jera at 06/08/2007

Any recipes to share? I've only been doing smoothies for about 2 weeks now but I've found I really like it. It's a great way to eat your veggies and fruits and easy, too. No chewing required!

Here's a very simple one I started with:

2 cups raw spinach leaves (whole)
4-6 strawberries (tops off)
Half a banana
A little bit of water

Blend the fruits & the water first and then add the spinach leaves a small handful at a time, blending in between until smooth. Then drink. :)

You can make a smoothie as simple or complex as you want. My current blender is pretty tiny though so I keep the ingredients pretty basic with a 3 fruit/​veg combo.

Sounds interesting, I hadn't thought to put spinach in my berry/banana smoothie before.

My current breakfast smoothie is:

1 banana
1 apple
6 boysenberries
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
2 Kale leaves
about 1/4 to 1/2 cup soymilk

I also add ground almonds, pumpkin kernels and flaxseed. It's yummo! Change the fruit with the seasons.

Love these green recipes. I've been doing this one:

1/2 bottle chilled Lipton Raspberry Iced Tea 237 mL
3/4 cup mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) 175 mL
1/2 banana 1/2
In a blender, combine Lipton Raspberry Iced Tea, berries and banana. Pour into glass and garnish with strawberry.
