Basic green smoothie - where to start

(1/3) > >>

John:
This is a simple and wonderful green smoothie and is great for those who are new to drinking them. This is what I generally recommend to begin your journey.

In your blender put:

- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup of pineapple (or...blueberry, apple, peach, mango)
- 1 cup fresh greens (~2 kale leaves, ~2 chard leaves, ~1 small handful spinach)
- 1 pint/16 oz water

optional (for added sweetness if necessary):
- 2 or more dates (fresh dates)

Blend until smooth. And enjoy!

robinB:
This is awesome!

I really enjoy the pineapple with spinach flavor - I usually use romaine but am liking the spinach now.

John:
Mixing up the greens and fruit lends gives you endless possibilities.

For a milder smoothies romaine is a great option as is chard.
For a more robust flavor spinach is nice as well as mustard greens and carrot tops.

Shawna:
Don't forget to read the information about rotating your greens.

I think it's on this site somewhere. John?

Thanks!
Shawna

green smoothie junkie:
I have to agree, this is a fantastic place to start. If you are shy with the greens feel free to use less to begin.

Personally, I'd avoid the agave and go with the dates.

Enjoy.
