Why We Like It

Refreshing and bursting with flavor, this is one of my favorite smoothies!  Feel free to add more spinach or kale and adjust to your taste!

Quick Tips

Use this formula as a guide, but feel free to get creative — you don’t need a recipe!

1 cup liquid (almond milk, milk, or 100% juice, or use 1/2 cup yogurt with 3/4 to 1 cup liquid)

+ 1 fruit (banana, berries, peach, grapes, pineapple, kiwi, or others of your choice)

+ 1 cup frozen fruit (frozen banana, mango, pineapple, or berries. No frozen? Use 1/2 cup of ice!)

+ 1 veggie (OPTIONAL, about 1/2 cup spinach, kale, avocado, cucumber, cauliflower or pumpkin)

+ 1 Tbsp nutritional boost (OPTIONAL, nut butter, nuts, hemp hearts, flax seeds, chia seeds, etc.)

+ 1 Tbsp sweetener (OPTIONAL, 1-2 pitted dates or 1 Tbsp of pure maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar)

Tips for a No-Fail Smoothie:

  • Add liquid first! (It will make it easier for the blades of your blender to get things moving!)
  • When making a smoothie with greens, avoid dark berries such as blueberries or blackberries.  (Your smoothie will end up being an unattractive color!)  Or, if you don’t care about how it looks — then go for it and add them in!
  • Make your smoothie first with no additional sweetener, and then taste and add the optional sweetener if desired.  Sometimes the sweetness of the fruit is enough!
