Post Your Green Smoothie Recipes

#1 Postby veggieprincess » Mon Aug 25, 2008 4:14 pm

I've been scouring the internet for yummy green smoothie recipes. Would love some tasty ideas for Kale.

Here is one I made today that turned out really really good!

2 - 3 cups spinach
Appx 10 slices cucumber slices
2 miniature organic apples
Large handful green grapes
1/2 small banana
2 tsp flax seed oil
2 - 3 Tbsp Soy Creamer
Ice

Of course you can omit the soy creamer and it will still taste really good.

This was superb! So light and refreshing. I find that I don't like avocado and bananas mixed together because it makes my smoothies too thick.

What about you? Post some of your favorites.

2 leafs of kale (make sure it is super fine- liquidity) add a bit of water if needed
1 cup of arugla or leafy greens of your choice
3 ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
1 small purple onion, finely chopped
1 cucumber
1 sweet red bell pepper (or green) seeded and chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1-2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp grape seed oil
2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon agave nectar
sea Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste may very based on how salty you want it
6 or more drops of Tabasco sauce to taste
2 cups fresh tomato juice

this is about 8 servings worth

Combine all ingredients. Blend slightly, to desired consistency. Place in non-metal, non-reactive storage container, cover tightly and refrigerate overnight, allowing flavors to blend.

This is my favorite..and its really easy.
2 sticks celery
2 kiwis
1 large mug of fresh spinach leaves
1 carrot
Juice of 3 oranges or mandarins
and a bit of espirulina!

I liquidize the celery and carrots
juice the oranges
then blend in the kiwis, espirulina and spinach

*If it's too thick add another orange!!!
For someone who hasnt tried smoothies before use 1/2 cup of spinach leaves and 1 stick of celery and all the other ingredients the same...only you should liquidize the spinach and not blend it in. Llike this you can only really taste the orange juice. I use this "light" smothie for my 11 year old daughter and she loves it!! The otherone looks like pureed frog-spawn or something and although it tastes really nice she gets a bit freaked out with the way it looks!!! :mrgreen:

A smoothie I take before training is really delicious..although its not green!! I just blend 2 bananas into 1/2 pint of soya milk with my vitamin B tab and a bit of espirulina.

1 Avocado
2 Carrots (may need chopping somewhat if your blender's blade isn't particularly strong)
Half a Cucumber
2 teaspoons of Wheatgrass powder
2 teaspoons of Spirulina powder

Chuck in a blender and add water (either 1/2 full or 3/4)

Takes no time at all

Ok..so this is a smoothie for beginners! Even my daughter loves this and we all know what kids are like!
Ingredients:
Juice 3 oranges
2 peeled kiwis
2 cups of spinach

Now blend it all together..if you are doing it for first time smoothie drinkers you could add less spinach. I also add some spirulina ;-)

my absolute favorite right now is ...

1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup either soy or rice milk
1 banana
at least 3 dates, depending on my sweet tooth that day
1 cup spinach (about 2 hand fulls i guess)
1/2 avocado
1 scoop interactive rice protein (their vegetarian blend is good too)

so simple but so yum
