Green Smoothie Basics

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!
