Can we all agree that green smoothies deserve way more of a good reputation than we give them? *raises hand* I’m on a one-woman mission to convince everyone that YES, green smoothies can be delicious. And NO, it doesn’t taste like you’re drinking a blended salad. (Even if your kids might think it looks suspiciously spinach-colored.) This recipe includes three different types of frozen tropical fruit for a burst of bright flavor. Plus there’s orange juice and vanilla Greek yogurt for an added bit of sweet (and protein thanks to the yogurt).

The key to a superb green smoothie is masking the kale or spinach with plenty of flavorful fruit so that you’re getting the nourishing elements of lots of produce, but it doesn’t taste like straight-up leaves. If you love this smoothie try this Avocado Smoothie, or this Strawberry Banana Smoothie!

Table of Contents:

  • Vanilla Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt will add protein to keep you full, and the vanilla flavor gives the smoothie some warm sweetness.
  • Banana: A banana helps to thicken the smoothie and kick up the sweetness, masking the greens!
  • Spinach or kale: Here’s your green! Leafy greens are super good for you and you won’t taste them in this smoothie.
  • Orange juice + water: These are your liquids to give the smoothie a drinkable and smooth consistency.
  • Frozen peaches, mango, + pineapple: Peaches, mango, and pineapple (frozen) will make the smoothie cold and give it the tropical, fruity, bright flavor you’ll love!
  • Optional flaxseed, vanilla protein powder, + collagen: You can add these if you want more protein!

Add In Ideas:

You can add lots of fun things to your smoothies to make them even better. Adding in collagen or vanilla protein powder will up the protein, leaving you full longer and energized. You can also use other fruits, goji/acai berry powder, honey, or peanut butter for extra vitamins, minerals, and protein.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How can I prep a smoothie?

You can bag up the fruit and veggies in to individual, freezer-safe zipper-topped bags and store them in the freezer. Then you can throw them into a blender with the yogurt and liquids when you’re ready!

Why do I need to put the ingredients in a specific order?

Placing the ingredients in an order that will help the blender to gain momentum from the very beginning is key to helping your smoothie blend easier. By placing the yogurt in first, the blender can quickly gain momentum for the frozen ingredients to be easily blended. Loose powders should be last to prevent them from getting stuck at the bottom.

How do I store a green smoothie?

This green smoothie can be refrigerated for 2 days. I prefer to make my smoothies in a wide mouthed mason jar that comes with a lid. That way I can make this smoothie and take it on the go or store it easily in the refrigerator for later. You should be able to re-freeze this smoothie for up to 2 months. Make sure you whisk it well once it thaws or else it may have a grainy texture. Or better yet, blend it up in the blender again to smooth it out.
