How to Make the Perfect Green Smoothie

photo-7An indispensable skill in any healthy living repertoire is knowing how to make the perfect green smoothie. Not only is it delicious and healthy, it is also quick to prepare and clean up after.

The best part is that there is no wrong way to make a smoothie and no limit to what you can experiment with. You can sneak in healthy ingredients like green leafy vegetables and superfoods without influencing the taste – it somehow always manages to taste good! Or you can make a much simpler version with just a few ingredients. Get curious and experiment!

All you need is a blender and some of the ingredients below. I often include 1/2 banana per person to ‘camouflage’ the taste of the vegetables. I also often include seeds and nuts as the protein they provide helps stabilize blood sugar levels, which is linked to avoiding energy crashes throughout the day and maintaining a healthy weight long-term. They also help make the smoothie more filling.

Here is a step by step guideline to make the perfect green smoothie.

    Hi Vanessa, thanks for your comment! I understand what you mean about needing something to chew, and that’s why I find that putting the smoothie in a bowl and adding ‘toppings’ like needs, seeds, coconut flakes, cacao nibs etc. really help!

    I really like your step by step indications for the perfect smoothie.
    Would you have any advice on a healthy companion to the smoothie? I find it too hard not to have anything to chew for my breakfast. (it is probably a mental blocage, but can’t help it. If I do not have something to eat/chew, I do not feel satiated…)
    Thanks.
