Delicious Green Smoothie Recipes


Can a green smoothie taste delicious?


Most people think green smoothies taste gross. How can something that is green taste good? The image of green grass comes to most people's mind when you say green smoothie. I am here to show you that a green smoothie that is loaded with nutrition and taste like a tropical drink. When I think of tropical fruits, I think of pineapples and mangos. I just love using these two fruits when I make my morning green smoothie. I usually use spinach or kale with my fruit in my green smoothie as it packs a whole lot of nutrition and fiber. I know what you are thinking, spinach/kale in a smoothie has to taste nasty. It really does not as the sweet tropical food covers the taste of the spinach/kale. So are you ready to try spinach/kale in your smoothie for the nutrition? Here are some recipes of green smoothies that I like.

Lean Green Pineapple Kale Smoothie


Ingredients

1/4 cup kale leaves, packed
1/4 cup spinach leaves, packed
1 small banana, peeled
1 cup fresh pineapple 1-inch chunks 
1/2 cup  water
1 cup ice

Instructions

Place all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend for about 2 minutes or until smooth.


Blueberry Spinach Smoothie


Ingredients:

2 cups coconut water
1 cup blueberries
1 cup spinach, frozen or fresh
2 tablespoon chia seeds

Mix all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.

                                Chocolate Banana Peanut butter smoothie


Ingredients:

  1 cup water
1 banana
             2 tablespoons peanut butter
             1 scoop Chocolate protein powder
 8 ice cubes

   Place all ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth.


Tropical Coconut Mango Smoothie

Ingredients:
1 cup frozen mango
1 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons dried coconut flakes
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup cup ice
2 Tablespoons chia seed

       Place all ingredients except chia seeds into a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy. Stir in chia seeds with a spoon and pour into a glass.

 As you noticed the last two smoothies did not contain and spinach or kale but yet were green smoothies. The chocolate peanut butter smoothie was not even green in color. Yet these smoothies have the great nutrition of green veggies. The secret ingredient is an awesome supplement from Activia Naturals that contains spinach, wheat grass, broccoli, and so much more. This delicious Green Super Food powder also contains antioxidants, fiber, and probiotics. It is a great way to add the benefits of greens to your smoothies without the taste or texture that spinach and kale have. My boys love the Chocolate Banana Peanut butter smoothie and have no clue that mom put green veggies into it, they think it is a delicious milkshake. The Tropical Coconut Mango Smoothie may have a green tint to it but close your eyes and take a sip. This drink tastes like tropical paradise.
                                          

This delicious green supplement also has a berry taste to it so it would taste great in juice, water, or other smoothies. What smoothie would you like to try?

  2. What a great variety of recipes. I actually find spinach has no taste at all in a smoothie - but kale for me is a different matter.
