YUMMY green smoothie in a glass.

I’m trying to eat healthier!!

You know that’s not always easy, especially if you’re always in the kitchen trying out new recipes (usually dessert recipes too!) No excuses, I guess but I’m really trying to be a little better and make healthier choices so recently I started drinking Green Smoothies.

Over the last few months the hubby and I have created what we think is the Best Green Smoothie Recipe. We fill it with foods we love, making it yummy, refreshing and easy to make!! Sometimes, the hubby likes it a little more sweet so he’ll add a packet of Truvia, but I love it just as it is.

We usually buy the ingredients in bulk and spend an hour cutting everything up and packaging them in quart size freezer bags to freeze. That way we can pull it out, add a few more ingredients and we’re good to go in a matter of minutes. 🙂

how to make a green smoothie

BLEND. Add all ingredients to your blender and mix until well combined.

Note. If items were not frozen beforehand, add ½ cup ice to make it cold. This makes about 2 -3 cups. For more add ½ cup strawberries, ½ cup spinach and ½ cup more milk or water.

TIPS FOR MAKING AHEAD AND STORING

You can make one smoothie, or multiple smoothies ahead by prepping the ingredients. You can wash, slice, and divide the fruit into individual sized portions and keep them in Ziploc bags in the freezer. The yogurt can be frozen in an ice cube tray. The ice and juice are best added to the smoothie right before mixing.

With the ingredients prepped like this, you can take the ingredients straight from the freezer to the blender!

If you make too much and need to store the leftovers, add a little bit of lemon juice or Sure Fresh so the smoothie doesn’t brown. If there’s a little room at the top of the container, cut a piece of plastic wrap and place it directly onto the top of the smoothie. Store in the fridge for 12 hours or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  1. I’d love to try your green smoothie but I can’t seem to find the link to the. Link to the actual recipe. Can you please help me out? Thanks!!

  2. My favorite green smoothie recipe is 1 cup Spinach, 4-6 oz sugar-free plain or vanilla yogurt, 1 Tbsp creamy peanut butter, 8 oz skim milk, 1 banana, 1 scoop chocolate protein powder., several ice cubes. I often have it for dinner!

  3. I would recommend using greek yogurt and putting vanilla in it if the yogurt isn’t vanilla. Also, you could put a spoonful of cocoa powder and see how that tastes too! The recipe sounds good! I’m gonna try it 🙂

  4. I love smoothies!! It’s become my new favorite summer breakfast especially since it’s too hot here in Houston….as you well know 🙂 lol!! I’m going to try the freezing ahead of time like you suggested. I hadn’t thought about it, but it would sure make my life simplier. I usually put a handful of spinach, frozen strawberries, fresh banana, greek vanilla yogart and 1 pack of Truvia and blend. I’ve also made it with frozen raspberries and both were delicious!! Thanks for the recipe. I will be trying it!!

  5. What do you usually use for liquid and how much? Smoothies have become my new go to breakfast, can’t wait to try. I have been making them with oatmeal and PB2 they are super filling.
