Blending green smoothies without leafy chunks


Do you ever watch your smoothie blend for one, maybe two, minutes waiting impatiently for the leafy chunks to disappear from your green smoothie? You’re not alone! It’s never fun to try drinking green smoothies that leave little green bits in between your teeth. The good news? It doesn’t take an industrial blender to get rid of leafy chunks! You just have to make a simple adjustment to the way you blend.

4 Steps to Eliminate Leafy Green Chunks


SGS_numbers_1
Place leafy greens and liquid into blender pitcher (nothing else just yet!).

SGS_numbers_2
Blend until mixture is a green and juice-like consistency.

SGS_numbers_3
Stop blender and add the remaining ingredients to blender pitcher.

SGS_numbers_4
Blend again— until the whole smoothie is a creamy consistency.

It’s that easy!

Whether you have a $30 Oster blender, or a high-powered industrial blender, you can drink green smoothies without leafy chunks. Want more good news? You can follow this same process for fruits/veggies that are more difficult to blend. You may not completely pulverize those pesky pomegranate seeds, but your green smoothie will be less gritty if you blend them with liquid first. Cheers!

p.s. Want the recipe shown above? It’s our Pomegranate Citrus Punch. Find the recipe HERE.

    I was surprised with the Day 1 smoothie. I thought with all of the fruit that it would be really sweet. My husband tried a little and thought it tasted like watermelon rind. Also, the recipe made a large drink, so I froze 1/2 for day 2 (so the 7 day smoothies will last 14 days). I want to do this correctly — is it important to eat the whole drink each day? Thanks.

    Hey Linda,

    Feel free to add less greens and more fruit if you need to make it sweeter tasting. If you are too full from the smoothie then that is totally fine. You could put it in a glass airtight container and keep it in the fridge.

    Hope that helps!

    Hello,

    I’ve been drinking smoothies made mostly with fruit, so I’m not a complete novice. However, I wanted to try to incorporate more veggies in my diet. I remembered seeing a simple green smoothie recipe from a flyer in the newspaper several months ago. I “Googled it” and that’s how I discovered your website. I’ve also downloaded the app! I am on day two of the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge! I’m very excited to try all of the Green Smoothie recipes! So far, so good! The app is an awesome tool for great tips and recipes. Keep up the GREAT work!!

    Hi, I’m having a hard time not seeing kale chunks. I have a Ninja and tried this. The smoothie taste good but imchewung on kale. I tried the above instructions as well.

    Hey Cha Cha,

    Hmm did you make sure to rip off all the kale stems before putting them into the blender? If you haven’t that will probably make a huge difference. Also I would try blending for a longer period of time.

    Hope that helps!

    I have the same problem with the ninja. Regardless of how long I let it go for it doesn’t completely blend
