Simple Green Smoothie

Don't let the green coloring of this smoothie scare you! This quick and easy smoothie tastes like sweet bananas and is a favorite among kids. Make a serving for yourself or triple the recipe so that your family can tackle the day ahead fueled with omega-3s, cancer-fighting antioxidants, and fiber. If the kids are hesitant to give one a try, make it fun by calling it a Hulk Shake, Leprechaun Potion, or Monster Brew!

3 cups almond or nondairy milk of choice

1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries

1/2 cup frozen mango

2 tablespoons raw almond butter

sprinkle of cinnamon

4 or 5 kale leaves

handful of spinach

 

In high-speed blender, blend all ingredients until smooth.

Apple & Mango Green Smoothie

Green smoothies have many of the same benefits of green juices, but they’re loaded with fiber too. So you can load up on vitamins, minerals, and fiber all at once! This recipe from The Blender Girl for Apple & Mango Green Smoothie calls for radish greens, but you can try it with spinach, kale, or your favorite leafy greens.

 

Make Juice Not War Green Drink

Green juices are loaded with vitamins, minerals, and oxygen. They can cleanse your system, regulate digestion, and leave you looking (and feeling) younger! The cucumber base in this green juice from Kris Carr is a great source of vitamin C.

 

Strawberry Green Smoothie

This Strawberry Green Smoothie from Hell If I Gnaw is a quick and easy way to start your day. Almond milk gives it a thick, milky texture, and flaxseeds have been linked with reducing the risk of breast cancer.

 

Sweet Kale and Pear Green Smoothie

Nothing beats starting your day with a shot of fiber, iron, calcium, antioxidants, and vitamins. This Sweet Kale and Pear Green Smoothie from The Blender Girl packs a powerful punch to kickstart your day.

 

Little Green Juice

This recipe for Little Green Juice by Freshly Grown is a tasty way to balance your body's pH, regulate digestion, and reduce inflammation. The greens in this recipe are an excellent source of cancer-fighting antioxidants. Feel free to reduce or increase the amount of apple to suit your taste.
