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.

    My favorite smoothie would be #5 Tropical Turmeric Cleansing Smoothie because I have eczema and anything that can help with decreasing inflammation in my body would be helpful with flare ups!

    I’m VERY excited to try the anti-inflammatory smoothie. It looks so great…. I got in a car accident 2+ months ago and still feeling pain and inflammation so I need all the help I can get in that dept.!

    The Tropical Turmeric Cleanse Smoothie sounds YUMMY! I love every ingredient in it, even that black pepper to go with the turmeric powder. From my skin issues and feet/legs symptoms, I may have liver issue, like fatty liver. So this smoothie should be so delicious that I can make it a staple smoothie for my liver health. I truly appreciate you sharing all these yummy vegan green smoothies, and encouraging us who are struggling with making the move, the change, and make the transformation of our health.

    I’ve made several of these (yum!), but have not made the banana chocolate smoothie, so that’ll be next on my list! I’m excited to make it because I think my kids are going to love it, and any opportunity to get more fruits and veggies in their growing bodies should absolutely be taken
    Thank you for all you do, love love love cooking from your books!
