I'm big on smoothies in the morning, but haven't been getting onto the green smoothies as much as I should. Anyone got any favourite yummy green smoothie recipes to share? mmmm green

I really like the combination of juiced spinach, apple, celery, lime and ginger, thrown in a blender with some pure hemp powder and 1/4 Florida avocado.

well, baby spinach and a banana is a favorite. but since I moved to Boston I've found frozen kale a lot more easily, and I'm lazy, so lately I fill half my container (I have a Tribest personal smoothie maker) with frozen kale and a bit of water, and blend that first until smooth, then add a banana, frozen strawberries, and ground flax. The key with kale is to get it all blended smoothly, whether fresh or frozen, so it's good to do it first before adding anything else.

Blueberries, mango, and spinach.
Lately, though, it's been apple, banana, and spinach.

I used to be into kale, but spinach is just so much sweeter.

I like to fill the blender with kale. Then push it down so you can add 1 cup of frozen blueberries and a ripe banana. I add about 2 cups of water and blend. Sometimes I add a little flax seed at the end.

My jam is some frozen strawberries and blueberries, a banana, some juice, 2 tbsp hemp seeds, and a whole bunch of spinach. I was never into smoothies for breakfast, but now, these, I love 'em!

I need to figure out how to cover up the taste of spirulina in smoothies. It makes them pretty unpleasant. Maybe I'll just nix it from now on.
...though, I did just buy a $20 bottle of spirulina. -_-

I used to do 2 cups of baby spinach, frozen pineapple, frozen mango, oj and ground flax. Unfortunately my blender doesn't handle greens very well anymore and having little shreds of spinach kind of ruins the smoothie for me, so it's been a while.

i noticed this is a wicked old thread revival, but in case anyone is looking....

5 oranges, juiced
one or two bananas
greens (a bunch of parsley or cilantro, or 4 collard or chard leaves [large])

got one in the email today that was
4 apples
4 bananas
your choice of greens
cinnamon
will try it tomorrow.

Here are a few more threads, and I'll add my suggestions later as my lunch will burn if I sit here and type them all out now. I will however second Meggs' suggestion of mango, blueberry, spinach. It's so refreshing.

My favorite lately is grapes & greens. So good! Doesn't need any extra liquid, just add each to taste.

at my work, we make a smoothie with spirulina that actually tastes good! the recipe uses a banana, hemp seeds, coconut water, and pineapple juice with the spirulina. i think the key, though, is just the banana and pineapple juice. it's DELICIOUS.

my solution at home because i prefer a different smoothie is just to mix my spirulina and chlorella with a cup of water and chug it down before my smoothie!

Oh, pineapple! Super sweet and juicy - that would probably make a big difference. Thanks!
