Here at Femme Fitale Fit Club we LOVE drinking green smoothies. They are healthy, tasty and yeah, we like the color too. Every once in a while my mornings are a whirlwind and I am unable to cook my 3 egg whites, turkey bacon, etc. so I have to rely on my trusty green smoothie.
I don’t make it complicated to make it delicious. I haven’t been able to convince my young children to embark on this flavor extravaganza but I am determined to make a convert of them yet. My husband is all on board and expects them now. Ha! I use my Vitamix blender to make my delicious smooth smoothies! I need a device that is going to take a licking because I literally use my blender about 6 out of 7 days of the week. It has to be high-powered because before I purchased this one I ran through and burned out about 3 other blenders.
If you are on the fence about trying green smoothies, let me just say they taste better than they look. I typically use an unsweetened almond milk for my base vs. fruit juice. I find fruit juice makes it too sweet. I also typically use either baby spinach or kale in my smoothies. I try to rotate them just to get a variety of vitamins and minerals but those are my basic greens that make my smoothie green. I wanted to share with you an infographic I found which helps to simplify the basics of creating your OWN green smoothies!
This is a basic blueprint but you can get creative!
