A Simple Green Smoothie Recipe for Beginners

Ready for a simple green smoothie recipe for beginners? This will be perfect for you!

All detox programs need a simple green smoothie recipe for beginners.

Making green smoothies and cleansing the body does not have to be overly complex.

The best part about green smoothies is that it’s really hard to go wrong as long as it has some spinach or kale and some fruit for a bit of sweetness.

Green smoothies are healthy, nutrient-dense, fun, and a great way to use up some of the leftover fruits and veggies in the fridge!

The following ingredients are to make a basic and delicious green smoothie recipe for beginners, but we have also included other optional ingredients below.

Simple Green Smoothie Recipe for Beginners

Ingredients:

1 Apple
1 Banana
2 Handfuls Spinach or Kale
1/2 Cucumber
1/2 Lemon
1 Cup Water
Ice (Optional)

Instructions:

Chop the ingredients up (size depending on the power of the blender used) and blend.

If using a good standard home blender, chop up the ingredients into small cubes for them to blend appropriately.

If using something more powerful like a Vitamix (which is highly recommended) or any other heavy duty blender, less chopping will be needed.

For optimal results, use just enough fruit to make the detox program smoothie sweet enough to drink, but don’t add too much because fruit does contain natural sugars and more calories.

Use the additions and substitutes below to to mix and match flavors or simply use up whatever you have on hand!

Remember, the different colors in fruits and veggies are given by the different vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants they contain.

Use different variations and combinations to get optimal health benefits from green smoothies.

  • Watermelon
