You won't even realize you're eating veggies with these four delicious green smoothie recipes
This yummy smoothie recipe includes several non-conventional ingredients, like basil and avocado. But, when blended, the result is a deliciously light, bright, and refreshing drink.
Any blender should be able to puree this smoothie, so simply add all of your ingredients to the pitcher and blend until smooth. Top off the tropical experience by adding a lime wedge to the edge of your glass.
Looking to add some greens into your child’s diet? This strawberry spinach smoothie is a great option for picky kids who refuse to eat their veggies — they won’t even taste the spinach.
If you don’t have a high powered blender, puree your spinach and milk first. Add the remaining ingredients slowly, and don’t hesitate to add some extra milk if needed.
With a high powered blender, simply toss the ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth. With either option, you can add extra milk or even some ice.
Karen Mangum, the creator of this green smoothie recipe, is a registered dietician whose recipes include healthy fruits and vegetables. This particular concoction has lots of fresh fruit, so you won’t even taste the spinach.
Like the last recipe, you’ll want to blend the spinach and coconut water first if you don’t have a high powered blender that can pulverize leafy greens.
Then, add in all of the ingredients and blend until smooth. If you have a heavy-duty blender, you can likely blend everything in one go.
Kale is an awesome ingredient to include in your green smoothies, but the taste can take some getting used to. This recipe is a great introduction.
If you have a powerful blender, simply puree all of the ingredients until smooth. Otherwise, blend the kale and coconut milk first before adding the remaining ingredients. Add more milk if needed, and enjoy!
