Green Smoothie Basics with Variations

I love smoothies because you can add your favorite leafy greens, veggies, fruits, herbs and spices, so you end up getting not only a good amount of fiber loaded with vitamins but antioxidants too! All in one delicious drink!


Green Smoothie Basics:


  • ¾ amount of green leafy greens (spinach or baby kale)

  • ¼ amount of fruit

  • 1 tbsp flaxseed

  • 1 scoop of protein powder (optional)

  • 1-2 leaves of fresh herbs like mint, basil, or spices like a hint of cinnamon, turmeric, cardamom

  • Almond or other non-dairy milk or water for desired consistency

  • Ice, if not using frozen fruit – some might like the smoothie better when cold

  • Place all ingredients in this order in a good quality blender and blend for 20-30 seconds.


Cool Tip: If you are just starting out, experiment with more fruit and less leafy greens and gradually change the ratio.
