Some may call it an obsession, others may call it an addiction. Either way, we love green smoothies and have spent lots of time testing and trying various products to share with you (visit our Amazon store for the whole she-bang).
We always get excited when we find something that helps make life a little easier— like these double walled to-go cups or paper straws that are eco-friendly AND adorable! We have compiled a list of our favorite products that rock our green smoothie obsession.
Right now you can get these blenders refurbished and save over $150 on each— it’s a great deal.
We are in love with mason jars. They are strong, reusable, multi-functional, and super cute. We definitely recommend getting the Ball pint size wide-mouth jars (easier to clean) and the half-pint size for the kids. (You can also reuse Classico spaghetti jars for smoothies, which is Jen’s signature move.) And Jadah always has regular mouth mason jars too: pint size for drinking and quart size for storing green smoothie leftovers in the fridge.
Green smoothies and straws go so well together. We always have a few kinds around the house to be ready for any situation. For use around the house, we recommend stainless steel straws and this brush to clean them well. When you are taking your green smoothie to-go or having a large get-together, we recommend using paper straws. They are cute (definitely Pinterest worthy) and can be thrown away once slurped down.
Storing green smoothies is easy with mason jars. You can use the rubber seal or upgrade to these convenient plastic lids to prevent oxidation and keep your smoothie fresh and yummy when it’s time to drink. And these are some of our favorite mason jar lids from EcoJarz on Amazon.
Mason jars are great for on the road, yet are known to sweat and get a little slippery. Another great option are these double-walled BPA-free plastic tumblers. The 3-pack is great so you always have one clean and ready to take with you on the road.
GREEN SMOOTHIE ADD-ONS
Five green smoothie add-ons are: chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut oil and hemp hearts or hemp protein powder. You can get these at your local health foods store (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and online through Amazon).
