My Top 3 Green Smoothie Recipes

One of my absolute favourite ways to start the day is with a delicious green smoothie, or even better, a smoothie bowl – just pour it into a bowl, top with fresh fruit and granola and grab a spoon! It such a speedy way to knock off a couple of your 5-a-day before you’ve even left the house, and you can make it taste amazing at the same time.

Today I’m sharing 3 of my favourite green smoothie recipes with you. Feel free to play around and adapt them to your likes: swap another leafy green instead of spinach (kale?), replace peanut butter with almond butter, experiment with different fruity bases (mango/banana/avocado etc) and try another liquid – I love using my 2-Minute Pecan Milk but almond milk, cashew milk and coconut water all work well too!

1. Matcha, Mango & Spinach Smoothie

I love the gentle buzz matcha gives me – almost like a coffee but without the crash later. The mango gives a tropical sweet base, while the spinach adds a vibrant green colour and a dose of plant-based iron. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped mango
  • 1/3 cup raw spinach
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Homemade Pecan Milk (can replace with almond milk)

Method

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy, adding more almond milk for a thinner consistency.
  2. Pour into a bowl, top with granola and fresh fruit, and serve immediately.

2. Creamy Kale Bowl

This one is packed with fruit and veggies so crams in a huge array of nutrients! I like to add a scoop of my favourite protein powder from Misfits Health. I love combination of flavours in here, with vanilla undertones and a touch of citrus.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 banana, chopped and frozen for at least 1 hour
  • 1 ripe pear, cored and quartered
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 heaped tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 25g (1 scoop) Misfits vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup kale
  • 1/2 cup cashew milk

Method

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy, adding more almond milk for a thinner consistency.
  2. Pour into a bowl, top with granola, blueberries and coconut chips, and serve immediately.

3. Gingerbread Christmas Smoothie

This bowl is flavoured with all the best wintery spices, from cinnamon to nutmeg to ginger. The Xmas theme continues with the colour scheme, complete with fresh mint leaves and a handful of redcurrants (which could be replaced with any frozen berries depending on season).

  • 1 green apple, peeled, cored and cut in half
  • 1/4 cup green grapes
  • 1/4 courgette, chopped (raw/cooked/frozen all work)
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1cm piece fresh ginger, peeled (or 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 25g (1 scoop) Misfits vanilla protein powder
  • 2/3 cup Homemade Pecan Milk (can replace with almond milk)
  • 4 fresh mint leaves, chopped

Method

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until creamy, adding more almond milk for a thinner consistency.
  2. Pour into a bowl, top with granola, redcurrants and fresh mint, and serve immediately.
