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.

    I’m most excited to try #3, the anti-inflammatory smoothie – not just for the flavor, but also for the potential health benefits. I was diagnosed with a muscle-inflammatory disease some years ago. I’ve only now begun to transition to a plant-based diet that will include smoothies. I’m hopeful that these anti-inflammatory foods will alleviate my auto-immune symptoms and I’ll be healthy, feel better, and have more energy.

    #3 Anti inflammatory smoothie, because I need help with the inflamation I have been experiencing

    Definitely trying the fat burning, mostly because grapefruit and pineapple together sound amazing. With all the green smoothies I drink, I have somehow missed that one

    These recipes are amazing. I’m a mom of three one which is a toddler with a feeding tube. I’m always trying to find ways to incorporate healthy food blends that we all can enjoy but get the nutrition she needs daily. These smoothies have made all the difference.

    Yum. I love all of these, but my favorite is still Beginner’s Luck! So rich and creamy. If I’m craving sweet and chocolate, definitely Banana and Chocolate. Tastes like a creamy milkshake. Yum. And, if I’ve overindulged, then I’m swinging for the “cleanser” type smoothies with citrus and ginger and general clean-me-out ingredients.

    Found myself feeling in need of some greenness this week so I obviously need to try them all again. I feel so less sluggish when I do a green smoothie every day. I will try the beetroot one I think as I love the versatility of beetroot.

    A green smoothie a day really does make you feel so much better!!! It’s crazy how much my body misses it when I take a break for a little bit. So happy you will be getting back into the green smoothies again!!

    Beginners luck is definitely one of my favorites. It’s my go to on days where I’m not up to trying a new recipe or I simply need a solid smoothie for my tough day ahead. Anytime a coworker asks me if my “weird green smoothie” actually tastes good, I share the BL recipe to get them started.

    Day 2 of the 10-day smoothie challenge: I’m having the Pink Flamingo for breakfast. I switched up the liquids to 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup coconut water. Love the strawberry taste!

    Day 3 Pineapple Dream Smoothie was really good. Just don’t add more ice if you use frozen fruit!
