Kale Green Smoothie with Grapefruit and Bananas

Kale Green Smoothie with Grapefruit and BananasIt’s been a while since my last green smoothie post. Kale is one of my favorite ingredients in a green smoothie because it’s packed with vitamins and fiber, and lowers your blood sugar, promotes regular digestion and curbs overeating. And since kale leaves have a tough exterior, be sure to blend the mixture on the highest speed until nice and smooth. Serve chilled with optional ice cubes for a healthy summer drink!

Celery Green Smoothie with Mango, Banana and Goji Berries

Celery, Goji Berry and Mango Green SmoothieIf you haven’t had goji berries before, they are a great snack and also work really well in smoothies. They’re sweet, healthy and rich in antioxidants and Vitamin A. Make sure you soak the goji berries in water before blending. This will plump them up, release their juices and allows for easy blending. I mixed in some celery, bananas and mango chunks, resulting in a bright orange color, similar to my vegan goji berry shake. You can find goji berries at most health food stores, Whole Foods or on Amazon.

Swiss Chard Green Smoothie with Lime and Banana

Swiss Chard Lime SmoothieMy last green smoothie post with romaine and coconut milk, was about 2 months ago so I think it’s about time for a new recipe. This green smoothie is refreshing and best enjoyed cold, perfect for the warmer weather. Swiss chard is the main ingredient and you can use any kind of chard, the taste should make no difference. Half of a fresh lime goes into this recipe, including the peel, so finely chop it if you don’t have a powerful blender. The flavor is bright and tangy from the lime, yet very smooth and creamy from the bananas. This particular smoothie is great for the adventurous type and a definite must try for green smoothie lovers!
