Hi there! I want to make this smoothie next week, since I’ll get a big box with kiwi and I got the rest in the freezer already… except for one thing: dandelion greens. I already checked, but I don’t think I can get it easily where I live and we’re in the wrong season to find them blooming outside. 😉
What would you guys suggest to use as a replacement? I could use only kale, but maybe you’ve got a good, tasty replacement for dandelion greens.
Dandelion greens unavailable? Try another wild green available by you, or swap in one of our favorite leafy greens. Here are a few of our favorites…
Hi, I just signed up for October’s 30-day challenge, but am starting to eat these everyday anyways! I love your recipes, but I am wanting to add more protein in my smoothies. Any recommendations? Would whey protein powder, yogurt, or tofu work well with your recipes?
Yay! We’re so excited to hear you’re enjoying our recipes, + we can’t wait to share our October 30-Day Challenge with you! Looking to add extra protein to your green smoothie, we love reaching for plant-based protein options like chia seeds, nut butters, + hemp protein. Learn all about our favorites here…
Will frozen kale/ spinach taste the same in a smoothie? I also was going to add some fresh and frozn berries with it.
Great question! We love blendin’ with frozen leafy greens, but those from the grocery aisle don’t always yield the tastiest results, that’s why we love to freeze our own! It’s also a great way to stock up on your favorite leafy greens when they’re in season, or even better, on sale!
I’m allergic to kiwi. Is there a sub I could use?
Allergic to Kiwi? Mango, orange, tangerine, + lime are all great alternatives!
Can I switch the lemon juice out for sth else? What would work well?
Thanks for the comment, feel free to leave it out or sub in a lime.
Wow I just signed up and I cant wait to start the challenge
My first stop tomorrow will be the super market
I’m definitely going to invite my family and friends to join team green
Welcome + thanks for blending with us! Cheers!
Hi, a lot of your recipe links are broken.
Are they working now?
Do you have a smoothie that i can put pomegranate juice in? Love your blig..
Thanks so much Susan! Here is a recipe that uses pomegranate seeds.
I was wondering if i can just freeze all the ingredients in a freezer bag? Or does it have to be a selected few?
Thanks for the question. Check out this link on prepping ahead.
I use apple instead of orange juice, spinach instead of dandelion, & no banana. It was my 1st green smoothie, but the best smoothie I have ever had; plus its filling.
Very great post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
After all I’ll be subscribing in your feed and I hope you write again very soon!
Instead of sqeezing out tye orange juice can I just use 2 cups of oranges?
Sure! You may want to add a bit of water, though, if the blender has some struggles blending it all up.
I have enjoyed reading all of the question and answer very helpful.
My ? I am Diabetic is it safe for me to do orange juice I am only allowed 3oz
If you’re only allowed 3 oz then we’d suggest not using it, and using water instead
Hi! What would be a good substitute for the banana? I cant eat banana, mango or avocado

I’ve noticed a lot of people are replacing the juice with water. Does the smoothie then need some extra ingredients to sweeten it?
Each person has different taste We like it with the juice, while others like it without.
