Green Smoothie Recipes

Green Smoothie Recipes offer the quickest, and easiest, way to meet CDC dietary guideline recommendations of 5 to 13 servings (2½ to 6½ cups) of fruits and vegetables per day … or 2 cups of fruit and 2 cups of greens for a woman ingesting 2,000 calories per day. The benefits of such a diet include a lower risk for heart disease and stroke, lower blood pressure, protection against cancer, increased gastrointestinal health from indigestible fiber, prevention of age-related eye diseases, weight-loss and more.

To receive the maximum nutritional benefit from such a diet, variety is as important as quantity … you must vary the types of fruits and vegetables you consume as often as possible. Luckily, our green smoothie recipes provided below do just that! Our recipes offer 4 cups of green goodness and a variety of healthy organic ingredients designed to maximize nutrient absorption end enhance your natural vitality. And, they taste great … which is the key to consistently meeting fruit and vegetable dietary guidelines.

Equipment Needed

A standard blender is all that is required to make green smoothies. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using any one of the many available NutriBullet blenders as they are quick to set up and very easy to clean. 

If you are making them for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Vitamix blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


Our Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe

Our favorite Green smoothie recipe is the Jolly Green Smoothie. It is is named for the jovial green giant mascot of the Green Giant vegetable company … and that’s a lot of GREENS! The abundant spinach base is balanced nicely by creamy banana and sweetened with berries to make this delicious green smoothie, not only good for you, but pleasing on the palate as well. And, this is the easiest way to get your kids to eat their vegetables. Ho, ho ho … Jolly Green Smoothie!

Total Time 3 minutes

Ingredients

Instructions

    1. Place banana, orange, spinach, raspberries, strawberries, unsweetened almond milk, honey, and ice into a blender and secure the lid.
    2. Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
    3. Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
    4. Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Notes

  1. For ease of use, we recommend peeling and slicing a number of bananas, putting them in a freezer bag, and storing them in your freezer for quick access.
  2. If you don’t have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.
