Top 7 Green Smoothie Recipes


We researched the green smoothie recipes our community seeks out the most and the results are in! These top 7 green smoothie recipes have been curated to maximize our workouts, fight inflammation, and boost iron, and also help us find the perfect sweet treat that we can enjoy without the guilt. We want to share these recipes with you as well as answer some common questions you may have. This way you will know that the smoothie you’re sipping is truly helping you live your best life.

Are green smoothies really that good for you?

The short answer is yes! Yet, it depends on what you put in them. There are green smoothie recipes all over the Internet right now, toting a healthy label, however, they can be loaded with processed ingredients that ultimately outweigh the benefits. We like to keep our recipes simple—full of the good stuff—so that we can reap all the benefits. Can I get a kale yeah?! 

Did you know that green smoothies are an incredible source of fiber? The American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine has found that the typical American diet is lacking fiber, which can lead to Type II Diabetes and hypertension. Drinking just one green smoothie a day can give our bodies the fiber they need to reduced risk of certain types of cancer and have long lasting heart-health.

What is a green smoothie made of?

We like to follow what we call the 60/40 method: 60% fruits & 40% leafy greens. This balance give us the best of both worlds: a delicious, drinkable smoothie loaded with nutrients. Who wouldn’t want that perfect combo on a daily basis?!

One serving of the perfect green smoothie is:

Every ingredient in our smoothies is intentional yet all result in delicious, drinkable creations that make adding into our daily routine a breeze. The fruit + leafy green combinations are endless and that’s why it is SO easy to add in this healthy habit, no matter where you live.

What does a green smoothie do for your body?

Made the right way, green smoothies can help lower inflammation, fight sickness, aide in weight-loss, boost iron and detox our bodies. Sound too good to be true? It’s not! We love catering our smoothies to what we need that day. Each of these 7 green smoothie recipes provides a healthy and whole food solution to the question of how to live a healthier lifestyle.

How do you keep a green smoothie fresh?

We call green smoothies the healthiest fast food, because they are super easy to prep + blend, then drink right away or pack up for a busy day. Green smoothies are the very best if consumed immediately after blending, since fruits and veggies start to oxidize after 15 minutes, yet we know that doesn’t always happen. You can store your smoothie in an air-tight container (glass jars w/ lids are our fav!), and then refrigerate up to 2 days, or freeze and thaw when ready to consume. You can even turn any of the green smoothie recipes into a popsicle that you + your kids will love!

Prepping green smoothie recipes ahead also makes blending quicker, and helps keep your fruits and veggies from going bad before you can use them.

    Ohhhh the anti-inflammatory and the tropical turmeric are both getting added to my list. With marathon training in full force and traveling for work these are going to be must-haves.

    It’s a tie for me! I’m most interested in blending up the fat burning smoothie and the anti-inflammatory smoothie, because I can make both of them without having to make allergy friendly substitutions.

    I am looking forward to making the iron rich smoothie bowl. I suffer from anemia and would like some of my energy back. The ingredients are things I’ve never tried before but my body is missing them so! Can’t wait!

    Right now I’m working my way back through the Autumn 2019 7-day challenge. Once I’m though this I’d like to try the Iron-rich smoothie bowl to switch it up from smoothies to a bowl. Also, it just sounds so nourishing.

    I am most excited to try the Tropical Turmeric because although I have been taking turmeric by capsule, I have yet to work it into a smoothie! I LOVE the benefits and look forward to being BRAVE enough to put it in my DAILY green smoothie! (And I LOVE coconut, pineapple, and mango already!)

    I’m most excited to try #3, the anti inflammatory smoothie because I’m dealing with inflammation. However, #7, the banana chocolate smoothie is a close second!
