Going the extra mile with green smoothies

Turning green smoothies into popsicles has been a game changer for us on a hot summer day! We also compost our waste and use it in our garden to add essential vitamins for healthy, happy fruits + veggies.

What about you?

Did I cover it all?! I’d love to know if you have an other staple smoothie supplies that I’m missing here. If you’re wondering about blenders, I’ve got an entire blender guide on that. If you’re curious about what superfoods to add to your smoothies, check out my Smoothie Superfood article.

Hello, I want to try one of your smoothies… and your recipes are a great start. However I have a few questions. We just got a Magic Bullet and that is all we can afford right now…will that work? The largest cup is 18oz so I was going to split the recipe…will that work? And are the smoothies suppose to be a meal substitute? (I am diabetic)

Welcome, Nakia! Yes, just cut our recipes in half to fit into your blender. You can use green smoothies as a meal replacement, or snack, whichever you prefer. 🙂

Hi! I just signed up for your 30-day smoothie challenge and was thinking of trying one of your recipes, the vitamin c immunity booster. My question is, when blending carrots do you steam them first to make them tender or do you just throw them into the blender as is? Thanks!

Hi Reno!
We usually don’t steam them, and they blend pretty well. If we ever do cook carrots before blending, then this is what we do:

Hi Jadah & Jen,
First – thanks for your inspiration! It really helped me get started on the green smoothies! 🙂
I tried to click on the link by the Blenders (Vitamix) because I would really like to buy a Vitamix at the amazing price of USD 329 + free shipping. But I can not get it to work … I just end up at Vitamix start page, where I must choose country. I am currently in Sweden but my daughter is in San Fransisco so I want to order it there … but I can not find USA in the list of countries … Is there an optional link to help me order?? A million thanks in advance,
Anna from Sweden

Hi Anna,
Unfortunately, the link only works if you are using the web from the US. Maybe your daughter could do the purchasing from San Francisco? I know it’s inconvenient, but we don’t have another option at this time…

Is there any reason not to use other protein products that I am already using in these smoothies?

I use mostly Whey protein, but use Soy at times.

Thanks,
Danny

Hi Danny,
We aren’t the biggest fans of whey or soy, but you can definitely add protein products. Here are some of our favorite:

I’m sure this has been asked, but I’ve been buying unsweetened fruit in the freezer section. Should I start buying fresh and freezing myself or is that ok? Thanks to finding you on InstaGram I’ve been obsessed with green smoothies!

Hi Lisa!
You can buy unsweetened fruit from the freezer section, or you can buy fresh and freeze 🙂 Up to you!

I signed up for the 30 day challenge. If i want to subsitute the smoothie for a meal, can i add a spirulina and coconut oil in the smoothie? I read that you could and that you can also make it with almond milk instead of water. Can you help me with that?

Reply
Jadah and Jen 2.18.2014 - 8:26 am

You can do that, Gisselle 🙂

I recommend using glass straws to reduce waste from throwing away paper straws (or plastic, like I was using at work). Also, when I used paper straws, they got soggy. Plus, glass is easier to clean than stainless steel (you can see through it and make sure you get any leftover gunk out). I bought mine from a company called Glass Dharma and love them. I leave one at work and one at home.

Reply
Jadah and Jen 2.17.2014 - 9:53 am

The Ninja is a great option. Check out this page, too!

I have a Ninja and it works really well, as I have been working it out at least 2 times a day. I also like it because if I don’t want to make a big huge smoothie I can use the single serving that comes with it. I used to have a VitaMix but it finally died of old age. I would highly recommend the Ninja. And since I live way out in the boonies of Montana I have to use mostly frozen fruits since they are cheaper for me way out here. And I was told by a store clerk that hemp seeds were illegal, had to laugh at that one.
