    Green smoothies not only help detox and boost your digestive track, but also give you more energy! After drinking a green smoothie every day, I’ve had way more energy. It feels great! Plus, you can make this green smoothie recipe using pretty much any fruit and green combo. Use your favorite fruits and greens to create a delicious, energizing and healthy smoothie that you’ll be making over and over again!

    Liquid: The liquid included in this healthy smoothie helps it to easily blend. You can use regular milk, almond milk, coconut milk or even some pineapple juice (or juice of choice).

    Greek yogurt: I like to add Greek yogurt to give my smoothie a boost of added protein. This helps keep me fuller longer. It also helps to give the green smoothie recipe a creamier consistency.

    Greens: Incorporating greens is such an easy way to add extra fiber. You get all the health benefits from the greens without even being able to taste them! I’ve found that spinach works best, however feel free to add kale or greens of choice. Quick tip: It’s best to buy spinach in bulk and then freeze it in zip lock bags. One package from Costco will be enough for TEN smoothies!

    Fruit: I typically add frozen bananas and mangoes, however pretty much any fruit would work. The bananas help to thicken the consistency of the green smoothie…so if not adding the banana, I would add a little more ice.

    How do you make a green smoothie?

    Making this green smoothie recipe is SO easy and takes only a couple of minutes! Just follow the simple steps below. Scroll down to find the printable green smoothie recipe.

    1. Add the milk and greek yogurt to the bottom of a high power blender.
    2. Add the remaining ingredients on top of the liquids. Blend until smooth.
    3. Add more ice or liquid as needed. Enjoy while cold!

    I should note, using a high powered blender (like a blendtec or ninja) helps blend all the spinach leaves. I’ve seen Blendtec do demos in Costco and have always thought they looked amazing! I did think the price tag was a little high though. However now after using one for a few weeks, I’m sold! This blender is worth every penny! It creates the most smooth and delicious drinks! I was amazed that I couldn’t taste the texture of the spinach in the smoothie. Usually mine gets clumps. This time around my kids had no idea what was in there. ;) I can’t wait to play with it some more.
