Green Smoothies Don’t Have To Be Gross!

Green smoothies don’t have to be gross. Swear. I love a good smoothie because let’s be honest, I don’t always get all of my greens in.  Many greens have little to no flavour; jamming a bunch into an otherwise delicious smoothie just boosts your green intake which makes your body super happy.

A couple of tips:

  • fruit like pineapple, banana or mango bring in natural sweetness that you don’t have to feel bad about adding
  • frozen fruit is a great way to make a cold smoothie without diluting it with ice, plus the consistency is magic
  • adding some protein powder is always a good idea.  I’m sensitive to whey so I like this one

If greens terrify you, try this recipe. Close your eyes and take a sip, we all know you’re hesitant strictly because of the colour. I promise you’ll be surprised.

How To:

  • if using ice, blend it first
  • add all remaining ingredients and blend it up
