    Mastering the green smoothie

     

    Now that you know the basics of how to make a green smoothie, you can create endless simple green smoothie recipes just by switching up the ingredients you use. Here are some tips to try out when you’re experimenting with green smoothie recipes.

     

    • Since leafy vegetables contain a lot of liquid, a green leaf smoothie can easily become watery. You can compensate for this with the fruit you choose. Banana, peach or avocado, for example, will give your smoothie a thicker consistency. Try our super smoothie, which uses spinach as a base and frozen banana as a thickener.
    • Don’t be afraid to get creative with your ingredients – as long as they’re edible! Spinach, kale, and cabbage may be classics, but did you know you can also make simple green smoothies out of carrot tops?
    • You don’t have to stick to just one green per smoothie. Our green salad smoothie, for instance, uses celery, lettuce, and mint.
    • Don’t get too wrapped up in the green aesthetic that you miss out on delicious flavour combinations. Try slicing up some strawberries, mango or other bright coloured fruits and drop them into your green smoothie. The contrast will look great and taste even better.
    • For additional protein and texture, try adding nuts or seeds to your smoothie, such as hemp seeds. Just one tablespoon of hemp seeds contains 9.47g of protein.*


    One of the great things about smoothies is how versatile they are. There are plenty of green smoothie recipes out there, and you can always tweak them to make the smoothie your own. Have fun experimenting and enjoy the reward of a delicious green leaf smoothie.
