Creamy Green Smoothie Recipe

These super healthy smoothies combine all the benefits of chlorophyll with the lovely sweet taste of fruit. The magic green colour is provided by a wide variety of greens.

I love to make my smoothies using almond milk. If nut milks aren't your thing simply add filtered water for a lighter, and possibly even healthier smoothie.

Green Smoothie Recipe No.2

Almond Milk with Apple, Banana, and Greens

Ingredients

  • Half a cup of almond milk
  • 1 apple
  • 1 large ripe banana, or two small ones.
  • Soaked dates (optional)
  • 2 to 3 handfuls of edible greens.

My favorite edible greens for smoothies include baby spinach, parsley, seaweed flakes, romaine lettuce, and sunflower sprouts.

Dates are my favorite healthy sweetener. The number of dates depends on how sweet you like your smoothie, how ripe the banana is, and how bitter the greens are. Sometimes I don't use any at all, and other times I use three or four.

How to make

  1. Pour the almond milk into the blender.
  2. Wash, core and chop the apple.
  3. Peel the banana.
  4. Add all the ingredients into your blender.
  5. Blend until smooth.

Delicious!

Almond Milk with Fig, Banana, and Greens

Figs are an alkalizing sweet fruit, full of tiny seeds. As well as a good source of calcium they also contain potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, and trace amounts of iron, selenium, manganese, copper and zinc.

For a more detailed analysis of the nutrients found in raw figs visit the USDA National Nutrient Database and enter "raw figs" into the search box.
