Green Smoothie

Start your day off right with a healthy and delicious smoothie!

Smoothies are a great breakfast option or a snack later in the day. It's a great way to incorporate full servings of fruits and vegetables into your diet and they're super refreshing.

Green Smoothie

  • 1 (packed) cup spinach
  • 1 (packed) cup kale
  • 1 (packed) cup frozen mango
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup cucumber
  • 1 1/2 cups of water (include splash of OJ if you'd like!)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seed

Mixed Berry Smoothie

  • 1 (packed) cup spinach
  • 1 (packed) cup kale
  • 1.5 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 cup tart cherry juice (make sure it's all natural with no added sugars!)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Peaches n' Silk Green Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • 2-3 cups spinach/kale/or mixed greens
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • Optional add-ins: 1 tablespoon nut butter, 1 pitted date for added sweetness

Here are some important notes to these recipes: 

  • A "packed" cup of an ingredient means that you should pack as much of the ingredient into my measuring cup as you can.
  • Frozen bananas are key to a *smooth* smoothie. You can buy a bushel at the market, peel and cut them up and put them in a freezer bag to use later for your smoothies. Peel them before freezing! Peeling a frozen banana is near impossible.
  • And finally, feel free to add unflavored supplements like protein or collagen to these smoothies, they won't affect the taste.
