3 Healthy Green Smoothie Recipes

Since it’s the month of all things green (aka St. Pattys), I’m sharing 3 of my go-to green smoothie recipes. I feel like a smoothie isn’t complete without a couple of handfuls of fresh, raw greens. I put one, or two, or maybe even three handfuls of greens in every morning smoothie I make. In my opinion, it’s the best way to get some raw, green nutrients and energy into your day without having to actually sit there and eat a whole salad. And since salads for breakfast are no-one’s thing, let’s opt for green smoothies instead.

Now I know what you’re thinking because I get asked ALL the time… do green smoothies actually taste any good? Well, the colour is definitely a change to get used to, but I promise, you won’t even be able to tell the difference, AND you’ll be getting a full serving of greens for breakfast! I always tell people it tastes way better than it looks but to be honest – it’s probably just me – but I kind of like the look of green smoothies. It reminds me that I’m drinking something nourishing with lots of key vitamins and minerals to keep me energized and healthy. I try to eat as many green foods as I can so when it comes to smoothies, the greener the better!

The first smoothie here is my Green Detox Smoothie which basically is a green juice turned into a smoothie. I love my green juices but sometimes I want the fibre too! This green smoothie is packed with detoxifying foods like lemon, ginger, parsley, spinach and cucumber to hydrate you.  Add a couple dates and a very ripe banana and you’ve got yourself a sweet and smooth detox breakfast that is going to make you feel A-MAZ-ING. I love to have this one on Monday mornings to kick start my week.

Next up is my Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie. This smoothie is perfect for anyone who is a little weary about drinking greens for breakfast. This smoothie is vibrant with strawberry and banana flavours to overpower the greens, it’s sweet with a touch of tart from the berries. You’ll love it.

 Lastly, my Pear Ginger Mojito Green Smoothie. This is one of my recent creations and is definitely a favourite because it has a unique sweet and spicy mojito taste while still packing in a lot of nutrients. I love adding ginger to my juices and smoothies because it has anti-inflammatory properties and helps with digestion. Anytime my stomach is a bit upset, I go straight for the ginger. It’s also a great warming food to eat during the winter months as it will add some heat to your smoothie and help shake off that winter chill.

Now that I have overloaded you with a few green smoothie goodness recipes, get out your blender and blend up some green magic in your kitchen.  Have a wonderful St. Patricks Day and I hope you start it off with a tall glass of one of these nourishing green drinks!

    GREEN DETOX SMOOTHIE
    Tasted really great. My mom enjoyed it too. I think think it’s a smoothie I’d recommend because of the it’s only the banana and dates sweetening it. Thanks lot for sharing this recipe.

    Had doubts ,but tasted really great. My mom enjoyed it too. I think think it’s a smoothie I’d recommend because of the it’s only the banana and dates sweetening it. Thanks lot for sharing this recipe.

  4. I need green smoothis that are not full of fruit. I love them but I am a diabetic and eat that much fruit. Do you have any good green smoothies without fruit but taste good. I could use some help.

    • To be honest most of my favourite green smoothies I make for myself in the mornings are very low sugar. I have been only using half a banana, cucumber, cinnamon, vanilla plant based protein powder (thats sugar free like Vega), turmeric root, almond butter, LOTS of greens and then if you need it sweeter you could add a date but I like it just as : Hope that helps.

  5. Hello!

    I have tried to make the “Detox Smoothie”, but it became more like a juice. Is it correct that 1 cup equals 250 ml? I am a norwegian girl, so I am not used to use measures like “cup”.

    Thank you for writing a very inspiring blog 🙂

    • Try just eyeballing it and adding less water. To be honest I usually dont even measure when I make mine I just add liquid so it reaches at least half way up the veggies. Hope that helps!

  6. I have never tried a green smoothie that I like – always tastes like liquid salad. I am excited to try these and see if they’re any better 🙂

    • I promise they dont taste like liquid salad! They may look like it at times but they taste creamy and sweet 🙂

  7. This is very informative blog you shared. I really it .Thank you for sharing such useful information.Green vegetables are gives us protein and vitamins.Its is good for health.
