The classic Green Smoothie is my favorite. Just your basic fruit, coconut water, green vegetables, and maybe one or two other ingredients to fancy it up a bit. The berries make the color of the smoothie not so green, but they add a lot of natural sweetness and antioxidants! Use this recipe if you’re just getting into making smoothies or if you’re just looking for something refreshing and nutritious!
Classic Green Smoothie
1 cup coconut water
1 c berries* (this is what makes it NOT green!)
1-2 handfuls of kale*
1-2 handfuls of spinach*
You can stop here, but sometimes I add these ingredients too for extra nutrients:
1 TBSP flaxseed or chia seeds
1/4 c greek yogurt
*I use frozen berries, kale and spinach. Kale and spinach tend to go bad quickly in my fridge so I always buy them fresh and then freeze them which makes them perfect for smoothies!
