My Go-To Green Smoothie Recipe


Green Smoothies. The name alone inspires fear. But I am addicted. Plain and simple. LOVE them.

I've had a lot of people ask me for a recipe. So, I decided to put it here on my blog instead of sending out dozens of emails. Anyway, this is my most favorite, go-to recipe for green smoothies. It's even sweet enough that my kids will drink it - and my neighbor kid asks for it when he comes over. :)


Shana's Go-to Green Smoothie:

Start with:
1 cup water
1 cup 100% apple juice   -   I've tried prune juice too, and that was pretty good - if you like prune juice. ;)
2 leaves kale or swiss chard (I like kale better)
2 handfuls of spinach leaves
2 stalks celery

Blend all these so you can fit more goodies into your blender.

Add:
1 cup frozen tropical fruit (my mix had mangos, strawberries, and pineapple)
1 banana, sliced and frozen
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 packet Truvia - you can use any brand of stevia sweetener, but I like Truvia because it doesn't have a bitter aftertaste like the others
1 cup crushed ice

Blend. Enjoy!
