Green Smoothie Recipe

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!

Add a BOOST To Your JUICE!

By simply adding some spinach juice to your daily juice you will get a mega BOOST of nutrients!  I like to buy a huge bag of spinach and juice it all into one pitcher so I can mix it with my favorite juices, such as freshly juiced orange or  apple.  The best part about spinach juice-  it is packed with a wide array of vitamins and minerals AND it does not have a strong flavor.  Thus, it will taste just like the fruit juice you decide to mix it with (kids even love it)! Spinach is one of the BEST leafy greens to consume, so try adding some spinach juice to your day and see how you feel! I’m obsessed! 🙂
