Green Smoothie Recipes

Green smoothies are not only nutritious but delicious as well.  Don’t let the color fool you — these can easily turn into purple, orange, pink, or red smoothies as well, depending on the ingredients you add.

Are you turned off by the thought of adding vegetables to your smoothie?  Well, don’t be!  Read my post here about making these nutrition-packed drinks more palatable.

These recipes are very adaptable to the fruits and vegetables you have in season.  Just use your favorite ones and you’ll be good to go.

Leave me a comment below to let me know which of the following recipes are your favorites, or whether you’ve modified them and how they turned out.  I’d love to hear all about it! 🙂

 

All the recipes below are from SimpleGreenSmoothies.com.  My personal addition to each recipe would be to add 2 scoops of protein powder.

 

Blending directions:
1. Use at least one frozen fruit to chill your smoothie.
2. Blend leafy greens and liquid together first (this helps avoid leafy chunks).
3. Once it’s nice and creamy, add remaining ingredients and blend again.

Each recipe below makes 2 servings.
