Here are our Top 10 Green Smoothies:

1. Super Sweet: Baby Kale Piña Colada Smoothie

With kale, pineapple, chia seeds, and creamy coconut milk, this smoothie is so yummy and is without extra sugars or calories! If you feel so inclined, you can always rum to it after 5 p.m

 

2) Super Sweet: Green Vanilla Almond Post-Workout Smoothie

This one tastes just like a creamy vanilla milkshake but in smoothie form. The great thing about this is, it’s not just yummy, it also provides muscle-building protein, making it the perfect way to refuel after a workout.

 

3. Super Sweet: Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

Avocados are a smoothie’s best friend. The avocado delivers an ultra-smooth texture to this chocolate mint concoction, while adding greens such as spinach or kale are so good for you. And the sweet flavors of mint, vanilla, honey, and cacao nibs help mask the “green” taste of the veggies.

 

4. Sweet (and Spicy!): Green Citrus Smoothie

A spice smoothie?! It may sound odd but it actually does work. Cayenne pepper and ginger add spice, while green grapes and an orange provide delicious notes. This drink tastes like juice, without losing beneficial fiber from the fruits and veggies.

 

5. Slighty Sweet: The Green Banana

Go bananas with this recipe! What’s great about it is, that it’s so versatile: an on-the-go breakfast, post-workout fuel, or for a mid-afternoon energy boost!

 

6. Slightly Sweet: Ginger Pear Smoothie

This smoothie is wonderful for a recovery drink post workout. And what’s better, it’s dairy-free, contains anti-inflammatory ginger as well as healthy omega 3s from flax and hemp seeds. Super healthy!

 

7. Mostly Green: Sweet Kale Smoothie

If you like a bit of tropics in your drink, this smoothie topped with coconut flakes is for you. It’s packs in antioxidants from kale and spinach plus it also has healthy fats from coconut oil. A great kick start to your day.

 

8. Mostly Green: The Clean Green Smoothie

This one is a power house of a smoothie. With the additions of chia seeds, spirulina, and kale, it will definitely help give you that much needed boost if you’ve had a little much indulging!

 

9. Mostly Green: Honeydew, Mint, and Baby Bok Choy Smoothie

Honeydew melon has quite a lot of natural sweetness. Add it into this smoothie, it gives you a refreshing take on the smoothie. The honeydew melon and mint help to hide the “green” taste of baby bok choy.

 

10. Super Green: Raw Green Smoothie

With healthy ingredients of fruits and veggies, e.g. romaine lettuce, apples, and lemon, it is a great raw smoothie recipe. And the best part is, it tastes awesome!

Smoothies are a fantastic and quick way to get your fill of nutrients in one go! However, be warned if you like mixing up your smoothie recipes. This is because if you’re not careful, it can add unnecessary calories to your smoothies and you could put on weight without realising it. So, be calorie and ingredient wise when creating your smoothies.
