5 Green Smoothie Tips


5 Green Smoothie Tips for Beginners

Hey there rawkstar! We’ve got a few important green smoothie tips to help you get started with the green smoothie lifestyle. This is the good stuff. The stuff we wish we knew about when we first starting blending and drinking our greens.

 

5 Green Smoothie Tips to Get You Started

  1. Follow the 60/40 formula. When you’re making your first few green smoothies, don’t just throw things in the blender. Chances are, it’ll taste nasty if you wing it right out of the gate. To save you a few smoothie-fails, bust out those cute lil’ measuring cups learn how to make your own green smoothie.

  2. Blend in stages to avoid leafy chunks. Chewing your green smoothie is no fun! To get a “smooth” green smoothie experience, blend up your leafy greens and liquid-base first. Then add your remaining fruits and blend again.

  3. Ditch the ice and freeze some fruits. Want your green smoothie to be extra chilly? Freeze your favorite fruits like ripe bananas, grapes, pineapple or berries. This is also a great way to not waste ripe fruits (like those brown bananas on your counter). You can also freeze your leafy greens in a freezer-safe bag. Just make sure to add your frozen greens straight to the blender (don’t defrost these fragile lil’ guys).

  4. Use raw natural sweeteners. Add naturally sweet fruits to any smoothie that tastes bitter or a bit too “green.” By sticking with naturally sweet fruits like bananas, mango, apples, pears or pitted date, we avoid artificial sweeteners and processed sugars.

  5. Make smoothies ahead for the perfect fast food. We know life can get crazy busy— especially in the morning. That’s why we think green smoothies are the healthiest fast food for people who are constantly on the go. You can prep your green smoothies and blend the night before and store it in your fridge (up to 2 days). Use an airtight lid to limit oxidation and keep it as fresh as possible. When ready to drink, give it a good shake before you open.

    These SOUND great but do You Add Whey Protein Powder to any of the Smoothies?I Didn’t see All the recipes I just wondered. After WORKING OUT Its Important And ALOT of times We make them thicker BC We like them thicker like milkshakes. They ARE more More satisfying that way.

    Hey, I just got a high powered blender and it pulverized beets into smooth drinkable dreams 🙂 I also use Vega One vegan protein powder in my smoothies, so there’s a plug!

    THere seems to be a lot of fruit in these smoothies? Is this a meal or an all day sipper? Protein?

    Hey Sharon,

    Each smoothie has 3 cups of fruit in it which is for two people, and it is recommended that an adult has 1.5 to 2 cups of fruit a day. When you drink 16oz of our green smoothie recipe you will be meeting, or just under your daily intake for fruit. If you feel like that is too much fruit, feel free to do 2 cups of fruit in each smoothie with 3 cups of leafy greens.

    Also, our smoothies are meant to be added to your daily diet as it is not replace a meal. If you are wanting them to replace your meal than you will need to add some extra healthy fats and protein to your smoothie. You can check out our suggests for that here:

    Hope that helps!
