Favorite Green Smoothie

Share it Please

Green smoothies are kinda scary when you first start out. They can end up tasting like crap or like the best, most delicious and satisfying smoothie you've ever had. Plus, sometimes they turn out an ugly green color that could be the equivalent of pond scum. Not the most appetizing thing the world...

But luckily for you, mine turned out a little pretty than that. Not much, though. However, don't let that deter you from trying this smoothie. It is literally the best green smoothie I've ever made or had. It's sweet, creamy, full of flavor and nutrients.

I actually based this smoothie off of the one from Sally's Baking Addiction. I've been a little obsessed with her blog lately if you couldn't tell already. She's so creative and her recipes look and taste amazing. You should really go check her out.

Anyways, when I set out to make her detox smoothie I didn't have a few of the ingredients on hand. So I did a bit of improvising (read: a LOT of improvising) and came up with this beauty, which is one of my favorite smoothies in the world second to this one. So it's definitely worth trying. It also helps that you can get half a days worth of calcium, over 300% of a days worth of vitamin C, iron, and about 60% of a days worth of
vitamin A. You're not only making something that tastes great, you're making something that can boost your immune system and improve your overall health.

Win win! :D

1/2 c. apple juice
1/2 c. unsweetened almond milk
1/2 c. Greek yogurt
1 c. frozen pineapple
3-4 large frozen strawberries
1/2 banana
1 c. spinach, packed
2 T. flax seed

1. Add all ingredients to the blender in the order they are listed.
2. Blend and enjoy!

Question of the Day:

What's the worst green smoothie you've ever had?

I've had one once where I put peanut butter and spinach in the smoothie. Let's just say it wasn't very tasty...


  1. My first green smoothie was too bitty. I didn't blend it for long enough.

    I've never added apple juice to a GS. May have to try that.

    1. The apple juice adds sweetness to the smoothie so you don't have to add extra honey or sugar. It doesn't really affect the taste so I use it a lot in my green smoothies.
