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.
