This Super Greens Smoothie is packed with a ton of nutrients from fresh fruit and hearty leafy greens. It’s detoxifying, refreshing, energizing, and tasty! Plus, it’s easy to make and delicious!

πŸ₯€ Green Smoothies VS Green Juice

Juices are higher in sugar and lack fiber. However, because smoothies are not strained, they retain the fiber from the fruits and veggies, making smoothies more filling. Plus, adding greens to your smoothie makes you feel fuller and longer. 

🍏 Ingredients

These are our go-to ingredients when making a super greens smoothie packed with nutrient-filled fruits and vegetables.

  • Frozen Banana. Adding banana adds natural sweetness to the smoothie and a creamy texture.
  • Kale Leaves or Spinach. We recommend starting with spinach as they are almost tasteless when blended into a smoothie. When you are ready to add kale to your smoothie, add small amounts first to see if you like the taste. They may make the smoothie slightly bitter to your liking. If that’s the case, use frozen kale leaves from the grocery store. 
  • Apple. I recommend using Honeycrisp or pink lady apples because of their natural sweetness.
  • Fresh Orange Juice. It adds additional nutrients and boosts immunity. 
  • Flax Seeds. Add a great source of fiber. 
  • Ice Cubes. Option if you want this smoothie extra cold and thicker in consistency. 
  • Super Greens Powder. Optional, but I highly recommend adding 1-2 tsp to your smoothie for an extra boost of nutrients. We love Tropeka’s Super Greens Powder
  • Protein Powder. Optional, but if you want to add some protein to your smoothie, adding about 1/4 cup of vanilla or natural protein powder will be enough to keep you full for hours. 

Instructions

  • Blend. Add all ingredients to a high-powdered blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth. 
  • Serve. Add to a class and enjoy!

πŸ₯ Smoothie Variations

Here are some great alternatives to your smoothie routine while still getting your daily greens in:

  • Add Fruit.Β Add about 1/3-1/2 cups of fruit to the blender. We typically will add either blueberries or strawberries.Β 
  • Skip the Orange Juice.Β Substitute the orange juice with regular tap water or coconut water for additional hydration.

This Super Greens Smoothie is easy to make, keeps you energized throughout the morning, or when you are on the go, and is packed with nutrient-dense fruits and veggies. We hope you all love our tasty green smoothie recipe. Enjoy! β™‘

  1. You star thank you so much! I’ve been struggling with healthy eating since becoming intolerant to so many healthy things, so i’ll definitely give this a try this week! Where do you get them? I had a quick look on the Sainsburys website but I couldn’t see anything similar…

    I love flax seeds! Delicious in flapjack – and a great excuse to make them!

    • I have been able to find them at health food stores like whole foods. I am unfamiliar with Sainsburys, but if they have them, they should be in the produce section of the store! I hope you can find them to give it a try! PS – I’m craving flapjack now! πŸ™‚

        Sooo Greeen!!

        Sainsburys is a large grocery in England. I usually try to find my ingredients locally, but if that fails I will turn to Amazon.

    Hey! This looks delicious, but do you know of any alternatives to kale (apart from spinach!) that have the same sort of health benefits? I have IBS and for some reason my gut is completely intolerant to both! I’ve never thought about putting flax seeds in smoothies either! Yummmm x

    • Hey Felicia! πŸ™‚ Have you tried sprouts before? Sprouts are an immature form of the vegetable and have tons of health benefits too! I would try putting 1/2 – 1 cup of baby sprouts (either kale, sunflower or radish sprouts) in your smoothies to see if your body can handle it! Other than trying sprouts, I have also used collard greens in my smoothies; they are extremely nutritious! I hope you can find an alternative leafy green for your smoothie! If you can’t tolerate any, this smoothie would still be delicious either way; just don’t forget the flax seed – so much goodness! πŸ™‚
