Green Smoothie Recipe — How to Make a Green Smoothie
Want a simple recipe for a green smoothie? The simplest way to create a healthy (and great-tasting) green smoothie is to combine greens with fruit, and add a small amount of water.
I never measure anything when creating green smoothies. I just add greens, fruit, and water to the Vitamix blender, and blend until smooth. If the smoothie tastes too bitter, you can always add more fruit. If you're new to creating green smoothies, I'd start-off with a 50/50 mixture, and then increase the greens or fruit to your liking.
Basic Green Smoothie Recipe
A small amount of water
Add all ingredients, and blend until smooth. Using frozen fruit is great because the smoothie is already cold. You can also add one or two ice cubes. However, people who follow Ayurveda and natural hygiene don't believe in adding ice cubes. The theory is that cold foods—such as ice cubes—slow (inhibit) digestion. I do add ice cubes occasionally.
