This is my favorite green smoothie recipe.
I know, I know… it doesn’t look very appealing. Instead of a pretty pink or purple color, it’s green! When I brought one to my husband the very first time I made one for him, his reaction was priceless. He had the most disgusted look on his face, and exclaimed, “What is that?!” After some convincing that it tastes much better than it looks, he decided to give it a try. “MMMMM,” he said. I must admit, green smoothies can be pretty scary. I have also had my fair share of green smoothies that tasted horrible.
Now I have my go-to green smoothie recipe, and even on my busiest day I will take just 5 minutes to blend one of these up. I always feel great after drinking one of these. Maybe it’s psychological because of all of the nutritious fruits and vegetables I see that I am adding to it, or maybe it’s because it actually is really healthy for you. Probably a little of both 🙂
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 2 tbsp non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp water
- ¼ cup organic baby carrots
- ¼ cup frozen organic raspberries
- 5 organic strawberries, hulled
- ½ banana
- 2 tbsp oats
- 2 cups kale
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend well.
Green smoothies are ugly, but taste greeeeat!
I have never tried a green smoothie with oats before! I’ve tried a couple recipes and once you get past the color — they really are great and like you said make you feel great.
I really like the idea of the oats! Most green smoothies I see are basically liquid salads, and to be honest I’d much rather just have a salad. But this one looks good! Good job – thanks.
The taste of this would be absolutely incredible 😀
Wow, what a great and healthy breakfast! Love the flavor combos you used!! Very nice!
This looks wonderful, never tried oats in a smoothie!
It is hard to get your head around the colour of these green smoothies that resemble slime but they are so good for you and I should be making these every morning (just need to buy myself a new blender – another thing for the wish list) xx
The green smoothee is exactly what I call my “goomorning smoothee” in place of coffee. Much better than coffee in the a.m. and keeps you energized and no crashing at 10 a.m. Good job!
it LOOKS like a great smoothie, but
i feel it’s a sugar bomb.
