What Are the Best Ingredients for Green Smoothies?

Fortunately, there are no hard and fast rules about green smoothie recipes and how these should be made. Although there are a lot of recipes out there, especially on the Internet, you can also invent your own recipes and use your favorite ingredients when making concoctions at home.

However, since green leafy vegetables are known for their nutritional value, it would be wise to frequently include the following ingredients in your recipes:

  • spinach
  • parsley
  • kale
  • bok choy
  • cabbage
  • romaine lettuce

As for the fruit ingredients, include those that are sweet tasting so that you won’t need to add sugar to your green smoothies. You can never go wrong with these:

  • mangoes
  • bananas
  • apples
  • papayas

Other types of fruits, especially those that belong to the citrus family, are also considered good. These can neutralize the taste of grass-tasting vegetable ingredients. So you can include these too:

  • oranges
  • berries
  • lemons
  • limes

Want a really nutritious and powerful drink? Then add some cinnamon, wheat, and flax seeds to your green smoothie recipes too. These ingredients are not only nutritious, they will also add some twist to the taste of your final drink.

Like I always say, don’t be afraid to experiment with your green smoothie recipes. Just prepare small amounts of drinks at first, especially if you’re new at this, so as not to waste any ingredient.

Trust me, when you get the hang of it, you’ll be whipping up delicious green smoothies with your eyes closed! LOL πŸ˜€
