Three Green Smoothies

With the new year, I know a bunch of you are trying to incorporate healthier meals and recipes into your daily routine. Whether you want to start the day with a glass full of greens, or want a healthier choice for your afternoon slump, one of these green drinks (or all of these green drinks) is the perfect addition to your breakfast lineup. 

Personally I’ve been craving some green juice lately, so I made these smoothies super silky smooth and liquid-y. I’m including some ideas in the notes for how to make these drinks thicker for a more spoonable smoothie experience, if you prefer. 

Three Green Smoothies

First up, we have this kale, hemp, peanut butter drink that’s one of my faves. It’s based on THIS green smoothie recipe, but I thinned it out a bit by adding some more almond milk.

Second, we have the perfect celery zinger. This drink, to me, is perfect for when you really just want a kick in the butt, whether you’re feeling a cold coming on or want a pick me up. The celery is so refreshing, the apple gives it a nice sweetness, and the ginger adds a nice kick.

Lastly, we have this tropical pineapple mango spinach smoothie. It has coconut cream in it to make it super thick and creamy. Because of the natural sugars in the pineapple and mango, be mindful of that if you’re concerned about your blood sugar levels.
