Making sure you have your leafy greens is important to maintain a healthy diet. But we agree that they do not always taste delicious. Luckily, we have a solution for this – green smoothies. You can start with these three recipes that are a perfect blend of taste and flavor. You can thank us later.
Banana-Mango Green Smoothie Bowl
1/2 cup mango (diced)
3 handfuls kale or spinach
2 tbs hemp seeds
1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
1/8 tsp pink salt or sea salt
If cereal and oatmeal is your favorite breakfast then you can also consider entering the green smoothie realm with something like a smoothie bowl. With mango, kale, microgreens, almond milk, and hemp seeds it will be a bowl of tasty and healthy wonder. You could also add fresh raspberries on top to add that extra kick of antioxidants.
1 cup spinach
3/4 cup of coconut water
1/2 a lemon (peeled)
1/2 a banana
1 orange (peeled)
1 serving of Protein Smoothie Boost which is optional
Most people enjoy a good sour and sweet combo. It is what you get when you mix the sourness of lemon with the sweetness of banana and orange. They taste great together as a smoothie. The addition of fresh spinach will only increase the nutrition quotient of your smoothie. Popeye would be happy to drink this too and get strong enough to rescue his Olive Oyl.
Snickerdoodle Green Smoothie
1 handful of spinach
1 banana (frozen)
1/4 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
If you thought that the flavor of a snickerdoodle is not just meant for the cookies, then you may just be proved otherwise. This delicious smoothie includes the goodness of avocado, spinach, cinnamon, almond milk, and banana. It is a great way to get back to healthy habits. If you want to add more sweetness to this drink, you can add vanilla almond milk (unsweetened).
