Green and Sweet

I used to be afraid of green smoothies. That’s right–me! It wasn’t until two years ago that I decided to take the plunge and wow was I missing out!  Ever since, I’ve have at least five green smoothies a week! They’re quick and easy to make and it’s a great way to get your leafy greens.  But it’s true, if you don’t know what you’re doing you can put in too much spinach or kale and not enough fruit to get the right balance, but that’s why it’s good to start with a recipe.  This recipe is delicious and I’ve made it every day since! I ran out of peaches and made it with just bananas and it was still amazing!

Need More Protein?

I put the option of adding greek yogurt in the recipe in case you need to add some more protein as an after soccer practice boost.  You can also swap out the almond milk for dairy milk, cashew milk or something else that you have in the fridge.  It makes a perfect breakfast on the go as well! I like to drink mine in a plastic tumbler with a straw on my way to meetings in the morning.  

Plan Ahead

If you love this recipe as much as I do, stock up on fresh peaches from Costco or anywhere else you may get them on sale!  You can slice them up at home and freeze them yourself so you can save a few pennies and make this smoothie all year long.  If you want to make it even sweeter, add a few pieces of pineapple!

I was wondering if using normal 1% low fat milk would work too. Sorry – I’m kind of allergic to all nuts!

Katie says:

Any substitutions for bananas ? My son doesn’t seem to enjoy them in his smoothie.
Thanks

You could just leave it out! No sub necessary.

Laura says:

Can i keep an left over smoothie and for how long in fridge or freezer?

You sure can! I would keep it in the fridge for only a day, but in the freezer for 3-4 days.

Bob says:

Lots of kids with nut allergies. What’s a good substitute for this without almond milk?

Lizzy Early says:

Regular dairy milk always works! Coconut work would work too but it does have extra fat…

VM says:

I would think a website like this would be a little more progressive. Boys are the hulk after drinking this juice but little girls have to have their delicate sensitivities protected from the horror of a green colored drink?

Lizzy Early says:

I was just giving ideas for parents to play with, I would have loved to be Hulk as little girl! You couldn’t even get my in a dress for a wedding or play with the girls my own age, I was always off hunting salamanders with the boys!

Rickie says:

Every kid is different and she is just offering suggestions. My daughter won’t drink any smoothie that is not pink, so I got her a pink tumbler with a pink straw.
