Sneaky Green Smoothies

Posted by Blendtec on

sneaky green smoothies

We can't all eat spinach from the can like Popeye but we can all benefit from the nutrients that super foods like spinach provide to keep us strong and healthy. Spinach and other leafy greens are dense with vitamins and minerals that can help everything from our skin to our bones.

Since it can be difficult to make ourselves - or our kids - drink things that look like vegetables, here are three recipes with greens that aren't-so-green.

Sneaky Green Smoothies

Skinny Peach Berry Smoothie

Ingredients

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ banana
½ cup fresh spinach
½ cup fresh kale, trimmed
1 medium fresh peach, halved and pitted
1 cup frozen mixed berries

  • Hi LeeAnn,
    Unfortunately, we don’t have any smoothie recipes that use both avocado and vanilla. Thanks for the idea, this is something we’ll look into.

  • Hi Sheela,
    Bananas are used for the health benefits, but also because they give smoothies a creamier texture. You can either leave the banana out, or use an avocado or yogurt to get the same creamy texture. As for the tree nuts, we suggest that you just leave those out of the recipe all together.

    Here’s some smoothie recipes that have no bananas or tree nuts:
    Acai Berry Smoothie
    Basic Green Smoothie
    Berried Up to Here
    Peach Yogurt Cooler

  • Lately I have been adding organic kiwifruit and a small piece of fresh ginger root to our morning green drink. Very refreshing.

  • Do you have a recipe for an avocado/vanilla recipe

  • I use my Blendtec everyday, but not always for food! I make laundry soap too, blending the dry ingredients to a fine powder using the wildside jar.

  • I like to cook vegetables and then chill them in the frig or freezer. Then I blend them with a little ice and water. I only add enough ice to chill. They are like vegetable juices with the pulp. The fact that my blendtec is 100 times easier to clean up then any juicer I have ever used is worth mentioning. My favorite juices are Brussels sprouts, carrot, and butternut squash. Again, that is only 1 cooked vegetable plus H20. In addition, please note that I feel better after consuming my juice/smoothie.

  • I’m allergic to both bananas and tree nuts. Can you post more recipes that don’t use either of these? Thanks!
