5 Healthy Green Smoothie Recipes

Green smoothies are super hip right now, but not all green smoothie recipes are created equal. Check out these tasty, healthy green smoothie recipes to jumpstart your day!

Adding a dose of raw greens in your morning smoothie might sound a little bit … chewy. Maybe a touch bitter? But when you hit the right balance of greens and fruit, you really don’t taste the greens.

You also don’t need a high speed blender to incorporate those green and leafies into your smoothies. I’ve made hundreds of green smoothies in my bottom-of-the-line blender that I’ve had since 2006. If you’re not using a high speed blender, you just need to be a little bit more persistent. Blend, blend and blend some more, and don’t forget to let the motor rest for 10-15 seconds for every 1-2 minutes that you let it run.

Green smoothies don’t have to be a chore. You can mix up different fruits, greens, and even herbs and spices to make your morning smoothie tasty and healthy. Check out some of my favorite green smoothie recipes in this slideshow!
