Green Smoothie Tips

One of my favorite snacks and something I try to have every day is a green smoothie. I like to try different ones at juice bars when I travel to get some inspiration and tips how to make them myself at home. See below for some tips and things I think about when I make them at home:

  • My base usually consist of spinach, kale, cucumber or zucchini, and then frozen mango.
  • I sometimes blend in stages to avoid leafy chunks.
  • Ginger + lemon + avocado is such a great combo. Avocado makes it really smooth and creamy, and then the ginger and lemon balance up the taste and make it a bit more sour.
  • I often add coconut water instead of regular water.
  • I often add some green super powders, such as chlorella, spirulina, matcha, or moringa. I never take more than a tea spoon of each though so you can still be able to taste the other ingredients.
  • I usually add some hemp protein in order to make it more filling.
  • If I want it to taste sweeter, I like to add pineapple. Try it if you haven't, it's delicious!
  • If you don't like the bitter vegetable taste that you often get, or simply want a green smoothie with a twist, try putting some nut butter and cinnamon in your blender.
  • Mint also gives it a great taste, as well as kiwi, which makes it a bit sour.
  • Chia seeds are also great to add, or to use as topping.
