The Ultimate Green Smoothie Formula

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with green smoothies. They’re quick, easy, portable, delicious, and you can add a ridiculous amount of super-powered nutrients to each one. Plus, let’s all just admit that drinking something green gives you an excuse to feel smug in the best possible way, doesn’t it?

Below, you’ll find my go-to formula for blending up a simple, nutrient-dense smoothie that even the laziest non-breakfast-eater will love. If you’re new to drinking your greens, start with sweeter, smoother fruits (like bananas) and then as your tastebuds acclimate and change (yep, that really happens) you can get greener and more adventurous.

green-smoothie-formula

Super easy, right??

One of my personal favorites is what I call the Cinnamon Apple Smoothie: unsweetened vanilla almond milk, spinach, apple, chia seeds, and cinnamon. I also love my Coconut & Banana Smoothie: unsweetened coconut milk, kale, frozen banana, raw cacao, coconut oil, flaxseed, and vegan vanilla protein powder.

But, honestly, the combinations are deliciously endless, and if you have a favorite of your own I’d love to hear about it! I’d also be happy to go into more detail about the ass-kicking health benefits of certain ingredients (chia seeds, for example, or spirulina) – so if that’s something you’d be interested in just let me know and I’ll get on it.

Happy Smoothie-ing!

Or even better: Give my Blueberry Chia Blast Smoothie a try!
It’s without greens but it is super healthy thanks to the Chia Seeds (high in protein, detoxing) and the blueberries (super high in vitamin C):

One of my all time favorites: almond milk and coconut water combo, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple (too much and it gets too sweet), spinach, vegan protein powder, raw sunflower seeds.

Another goodie is almond milk, blueberries, frozen banana, protein powder and a scoop of raw almond butter.

Spinach-Mango-Kale is my fav. With water or coconut water. If I’m going fruit — I like a Blueberry-Apple-Yogurt combo. And there’s this one smoothie in Austin, that’s made with PB, that I get every time I go there.

I would LOVE to know more about spirulina and cacao, two things I’ve recently started thinking about (and even went as far as buying both cacao nibs and powder with the plan to add them to smoothies, and my new favorite — cashew milk lattes).

My favorite (basic combo) is coconut or almond milk (which I’ve recently learned to make myself :::cue smugness:::), a handful of kale or spinach, an apple (or half of one), and some chia seeds. Playing with other things (like avocado) recently has been super fun.

Also, LOVE this blueprint/formula! Is there a pdf/printable version?

We love smoothies! We use:

a banana (per person having a smoothie)
1 cup frozen berries (raspberries, black berries, & cherries) from Trader Joe’s
1 cup pineapple
1 apple (usually Fuji, because they’re awesome possum)
water

and they taste awesome. Quite possibly a little fruit heavy, but its so delicious, that we don’t care. :)

Whenever I have added coconut oil to my smoothie, it balls up and gets kinda hard. Do I not blend it enough? What do you do about that?

Reply

Julie April 23, 2013 at 1:02 am

Coconut oils get solid at cold temperatures, and more oil like at warm temps (Just like butter does). So thats why it balls up…ive never heard of someone liking a warm smoothie .Blech!

What you’ve just detailed here is what I generally drink for breakfast most mornings… except I don’t ever supercharge it ever, and it is still incredibly delish. (Also, I love the idea of getting in at least one serving of fruits and veggies for my breakfast.) And I think that would be good. Gonna see what I can find at the local markets this week to try some of those out.

Thanks for sharing, Nicole!

Angela February 17, 2013 at 7:16 pm

So I notice for the liquid component, there are all these dairy alternatives listed but not just regular milk. Can you tell me why no dairy? I find a lot of the soy and almond options just don’t agree with me and coconut milk is far too heavy.

Reply

Savannah May 12, 2013 at 10:47 am

Look for the coconut milk in the same aisle as the soy and almond milk. It’s very light. I think you mig be thinking of the canned stuff used for cooking, which is much thicker.

nicole antoinette February 25, 2014 at 7:20 am

Great question! I follow a completely plant-based diet, for health reasons, ethical reasons, and athletic performance reasons, so none of the recipes on my site include animal products. If your preference is to use regular milk, though, you’re of course welcome to!

I have been making smoothies with just MRM protein powder, Blue Diamond Unsweetened Almond Milk and then some kind of fruit or cocoa powder and or BP2. I’ve wanted to incorporate some greens so thanks so much for the ideas. I do have one question though, I bought coconut oil and tried blending it into my smoothies but it does not want to blend. Mine is pretty solid for “oil”. Any suggestions?
Thanks again

Reply

Katie May 22, 2013 at 1:36 pm

Hi Shari!

Coconut oil is fantastic, but it works kinda like butter — it’s malleable when in colder temperatures and like oil when its warm. Since I don’t think anyone has ever enjoyed a warm smoothie, I personally would forgo the coconut oil (it doesn’t taste like anything anyways). Don’t waste it though! There are TONS of uses for coconut oil! Just google it and you’ll see! Hopefully this was helpful!

This is awesome! Thanks so much for the great and easy to read chart! I’ve been wanting to start drinking green smoothies for a while. I’m waiting for my Blendtec in the mail, and I’ve got tons of fresh fruit that I’ve cut up and frozen – mango, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries. I’ve also bought hemp hearts and raw cacao nibs. The cacao nibs I’m a little unsure what to do with though. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

How do you store kale and keep it from wilting???

Reply

Michelle August 4, 2013 at 3:38 pm

Kale will wilt after a few days. *sigh* To restore wilted kale, trim the stem ends with a blunt cut and immerse in cold, filtered water. (A large bowl works for this). Leave on your counter top and you will see it ‘bloom’ in about an hour. Rinse leaves in cold water , shake off excess moisture, re-bag and put in fridge right away. If it is not too far gone it will look utterly fresh again! It will need to be used promptly after this. I’ve never had it work a second time!

Thank you so much for this formula. I just got into smoothie-ing about a week ago and I love it. I’ve also cut down on meat, bread, and sweets. With a smoothie I don’t even crave bad foods like I used to.

To store my spinach and kale all I do is wash it and then put it in freezer bags and freeze it. I buy it in a bag. Maybe not the best but seems to work for me.

I’m gonna stick to this because I like it and then I’m gonna get a juicer and a food processor and pretty much go crazy. Might even do raw for a whole week. So cool to find people doing this. It’s a really big help.

To your health,
Allen

Thanks for the post, it helped me make my very first ever green smoothie this morning! I just got a vitamix and didn’t really know where to start on the green smoothie front.

So this is what I made and it came out delicious, no sweetener needed. I’d like to recommend it:

1 cup trader joe’s unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 large apple (not sure what kind)
1 very large handful of spinach leaves
2 small handfuls baby carrots
2 “ice cubes” of wheatgrass juice (bought in the freezer section at health food stores)
About 1.5 cups ice
About 4-6 oz cold water

Note, I should have put the ice cubes much closer to the bottom for less trouble blending.

Anyway, it came out great. The taste is wonderful and the texture is a bit squishy but keeping in mind it’s a smoothie, not a juice, I don’t mind it.

I would have to add to the above instructions that you will need to balance some of the ingredients. If you have really juicy fruit, you can omit some (or all) of the liquid. If you have strongly flavored greens, you will need strongly flavored fruits to balance it out – an apple and kale smoothie just tastes like kale to me. I also work to get a nice balance between the sweet fruit and not so sweet fruit – I love the combination of orange and strawberry.

Hi there, not very new to smoothies been doing it for years now, Thing is, I now know why its important to eat raw!. Have you realized by doing this you release enzymes, which are mega important for optimal health, in hundreds of ways. I don’t believe in synthetic drugs or “magic pills”, and also, when you live in a small town farr away from anywhere, it’s hard to go organic. But did you know, when your in top health, your body actually breaks down free radicals and gets rid of the crap anyway…our bodies, wow, so amazing.

Someone posed the same question I had, but there have been no answers. There are multiple milk substitutes listed, but never just milk. I understand that may be a repulsive concept to vegans and some vegetarians, but I am allergic to nuts. I’ve tried using water, but I’d like some variety. Is there a solid nutritional reason not to use cows milk in a green smoothie?

Reply

nicole antoinette February 25, 2014 at 7:22 am

You’re welcome to use whichever milk you like, of course! I choose plant-based options for health/ethical/athletic performance reasons, but it’s all about personal choice and preference. If you’re interested in more info about this choice, I highly recommend the documentary Forks Over Knives as a good starting point.
