Basic Green SmoothieThis basic recipe is ideal for green smoothie novices. The same formula can be used for any fruits or greens to make a delicious smoothie every time.
- Add water and leafy greens to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid.
- Press "Pulse" 4–6 times to chop greens.
- Add fruit and secure lid. Select "Whole Juice" or blend on a Medium to Medium-High speed for 50-60 seconds.
*If you're a green smoothie beginner, try romaine lettuce and spinach because they have a mild taste. As you adjust to the taste of green smoothies, try Swiss chard, collard greens, kale, and even dandelion greens.
**One of our favorites is 1 banana, 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks or frozen peach slices, and 1 cup frozen mixed berries or frozen blueberries.
