Green Smoothie Recipes are simple - Greens, fruit, water, and blend.


Be sure to learn more about the » Green Smoothie Diet


If it's green, leafy and edible, it's pretty much a guarantee to be good in a green smoothie recipe. There are endless possibilities to making them. When starting out we recommend including bananas in the mix as they are wonderful at balancing the richness of the greens' flavor.

 

Use what's fresh, in season and take chances. Make note of what you like.



How Much Greens?

 

Even a single leaf will improve the nutrition of any fruit smoothie. Work towards 70% fruit to 30% greens. Add more greens as you get used to the flavor. If you find 30% greens is too much flavor in your green smoothie recipes for you then use less.

Not all Greens are Created Equal...

 

Different greens have a different level of flavor. If you are new to making green smoothies then stick with the milder flavored greens like spinach, chard or romaine. Moderately flavored greens include kale, swiss chard and collard. More strongly flavored greens include dandelion, mustard-greens, beet-greens, etc...


For the best possible smoothie for your body we recommend green smoothie recipes using only the freshest whole food ingredients. Fresh, non-dairy, raw smoothies offer the greatest nutritional benefit for you.

 


It's all about the texture...

 

Better blenders like the Vitamix or Blendtec do make better green smoothies. You do NOT need a fancy or expensive blender but it truly makes a differnce and nothing beats a Vitamix smoothie or one made in a Blendtec Blender.
