Have you ever had a green smoothie?
I didn’t think I would like them as much as I do! For the past month I’ve had one everyday. One of the benefits for me is that I don’t have to think about what to make for at least one meal a day. I’ve used several different combinations. I’ve tried spinach, kale, and I’ve even used a combination of both. Personally, I prefer using spinach. It is much mellower than kale and when combined with other ingredients I can’t taste it.
Benefits of green smoothies

- they help increase consumption of fruit and vegetables
- they help promote weight loss
First choose your greens. I used 1 1/2 cups of spinach.
Add liquid. I use 1 cup of almond milk and blend.
Then choose your fruit. I used about a half cup of frozen strawberries and blend again.
Add some protein. I like to use a scoop or two of protein powder and one scoop of collagen and then blend for the last time.
If it’s after a workout I add in creatine. If I have it before my workout I’ll add in oats. The choices of what to add in are totally up to you!
Here are a few of my favorites:
