Where do you land? The “green smoothie enthusiast” camp? Or the “that looks healthy but disgusting” camp?

We’re in the first camp! We LOVE green smoothies!

Why Drink Green Smoothies?

There are things you eat because they taste delightful! There are things you eat because they are good for you. You’ll be happy to know that green smoothies meet both of these requirements!

Nutrient Powerhouse

Green smoothies contain a wide variety of green vegetables which are nutrient powerhouses. The nutrients in these green veggies are more easily absorbed when in liquid form, and when you eat a green smoothie a host of vitamins are released quickly into your bloodstream.

Abundant Fiber

The abundant fiber in green smoothies aids digestion, the phytonutrients gives your immune system a boost, and the antioxidants give your hair, skin, and nails a healthy glow.

Reduce Cravings

You may discover that green smoothies reduce unhealthy cravings simply by giving your body whole food, and healthy, filling nourishment.

Easily Customized

Green smoothies are easily customizable to suit your tastes and nutritional needs. For some parents, it’s the perfect way to sneak some greens into your kiddo’s diet. My children don’t normally snack on spinach greens, but when “hidden” in a smoothie they are excited to consume this special treat!

Our Favorite Green Smoothie Recipe

One of our family’s favorite green smoothies is an Avocado Kiwi Smoothie. You’ll find that avocado creates a lovely creamy texture that pairs deliciously with the bright taste of the kiwi and lime. You can play around with it a bit and experiment with using different fruit juices or nut milks as the base. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Avocado Kiwi Green Smoothie

  • 1/2  perfectly ripe, large avocado
  • 3 kiwis- peeled
  • 3TB  cup lime juice
  • 1 handful baby spinach
  • ⅛ cup – ¼ cup almond milk or fruit juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • 2-3  ice cubes

Place the liquid in the blender first, then add the fruit and ice. Cover. Start on low speed, increasing to high speed. Blend until smooth.

As with most smoothies, this tastes best when eaten freshly made. Although the lime juice will slow the process, the avocado will oxidize, browning after a bit, so this wouldn’t be a good smoothie to prepare in advance and store in the fridge.
