Get your daily dose of disease-fighting greens the easy way with these Tasty Green Smoothie Recipes even kids love!
While I love healthy whole foods, I sometimes struggle to get the recommended amount of fruits and vegetables every day.
That’s why I love green smoothies! They are one of the easiest ways to get loads of greens into your body without eating a huge salad that takes forever to eat!
Green smoothies are also a great option if you’re new to healthy eating. Most people enjoy eating sweet-tasting fruits, but have a harder time eating their greens.
They know greens are healthy for them, but their taste buds haven’t changed enough yet for them to truly enjoy their recommended servings of greens.
This is especially true with stronger-tasting greens like kale and collard greens.
Kids also tend to love green smoothies for the same reason!
Most green smoothie recipes are pretty much the same – greens, common fruits (bananas, apples, strawberries, etc.), and nut milks. If you have a smoothie every morning, the same old recipe can get really boring.
Break out of your smoothie rut with Easy Green Smoothie Recipes you won’t believe are filled with healthy, disease-fighting greens like kale, spinach, basil, beet greens, and more!
Full of unique, healthy, and delicious ingredients that will help you achieve and maintain optimal health and lose extra weight, these Healthy and Delicious Green Smoothies are the perfect grab-and-go option for quick breakfasts and snacks on the go!

This smoothie is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL, bright, tasty, and nutritious.
I know I don’t get enough beets in my diet, which is a shame because beets pack a powerful nutritional punch.
Beets are one of the world’s healthiest foods, yet they are often underutilized in American cuisine.
This smoothie also features SunButter, a healthy peanut butter alternative made from sunflower seeds, making it an excellent choice for people with peanut allergies.
I LOVE grapefruit, especially sweet Ruby Red Grapefruits, which are, thankfully, in abundance at my grocery store right now.
Sweet apple and banana contrasts well with the tartness of grapefruit in this unique and tasty smoothie.
The recipe suggests adding orange juice to thin out the smoothie, which I recommend to add additional sweet citrus taste.
This smoothie is the ultimate for optimal health. Blueberries and chia seeds are superfoods that contain loads of vitamins and antioxidants.
Lemon juice and zest add a refreshing tartness, while cashew milk and additional cashews make this health drink super creamy and smooth.
Here we thought cranberries were just for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but cranberries are actually incredibly healthy and add delicious tart contrast to tropical, sweet mango, orange juice, and raspberries.
If your cranberry layer needs additional sweetness, feel free to add a little healthy sweetener, such as honey or maple syrup.
Clean eating whipped coconut cream topping makes this smoothie creamy and decadent while maintaining health benefits.
These smoothies also look super complicated, so feel free to serve to health conscious friends at your next get together – they will be so impressed!
Before I found this recipe, I had never heard of lucuma powder. Lucuma powder is made from the subtropical fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree, which is native to Peru, Chile, and Equador.
The taste of lucuma powder is described as maple or caramel to pumpkin-like.
This ingredient is a nutrient rich sweetener and is not necessary in this recipe if you don’t want to order it online – you can certainly substitute any healthy sweetener, such as maple syrup or honey.
However, I think it’s an ingredient worth trying as a super healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
This smoothie recipe is certainly one of the most unique with the addition of spicy jalapeño.
This recipe also contains cilantro, which is a nutritional powerhouse, and fruity mango to add sweetness.
If you like a little spice, try this recipe. Research shows that spicy foods help speed your metabolism, facilitating weight loss, along with other health benefits.

Made with bananas, walnuts and cinnamon, it’s a healthier way to enjoy banana bread and an easy way to sneak greens into a recipe.
Fresh, sweet peaches are the ultimate summer treat! Luckily, peaches keep their sweetness after freezing, so you can enjoy this smoothie any time.
