This is by far my favorite green smoothie recipe. I think the more simple you keep the recipe, the better! Green smoothies are a great way to start your day. They make great snacks or meal replacements and kids even love them!
What you need:
-1 1/2- 2 cups organic spinach (I just pack as much as I can in there)
-3/4 cup frozen organic strawberries
-1/2-3/4 cup fresh squeezed organic orange juice (fresh squeezing your orange juice is much better than the commercial ones)
*Blend thoroughly, add more juice or frozen strawberries depending on the consistency you prefer.
**I have a NutriBullet and LOVE it. It pulverizes any fruit or vegetable and results in an ideal consistency smoothie!
I also alternate adding boosts such as wheatgrass, tsp of spirulina, flax seeds, chia seeds, etc!

We have an Omega juicer, but I’ve been wondering about the NutriBullet.
I love it. I also have a Ninja. But the NutriBullet is great for smoothies and makes the perfect size smoothie!
Sounds yummy! I’ll try it this week. Thanks!
I haven’t tried a green smoothie yet. Maybe this will be a good start!
love green smoothies! Great recipe. Try Maca powder as an additive too, it’s a great energizer! (don’t be intimidated, but it is said to stimulate your libido as well)
Love green smoothies! I was debating on whether to do the nutri bullet or the magic bullet. Went with the magic simply because it was cheaper. Do you let your fruit thaw out before putting it in, or does the nutri do a good job at chopping them up? I have to let mine thaw, too scared it will break my little bullet.
I LOVE the nutribullet! I do not have to let fruit thaw before putting it in..it will literally pulverize anything you put in there!
Looks like I will have to make an upgrade this summer, thanks!
I keep meaning to try green smoothies. Sounds yummy! Thanks for stopping by my blog as well. 🙂
