Green Smoothie Template

Original Recipe

Serves 1

It took me a long time to figure out how to make breakfast smoothies that were reliable good tasting and kept me full through lunch.


On the bottom of the blender:

  • 1 cup milk (regular, almond, oat, whatever)
  • 1 or 2 heaping spoonfuls of greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbs chia seeds*
  • 1/2 serving of vanilla protein powder (we use whey or whey/casein)

1 c fruit, preferably at least half of it frozen

1/2 to 1 c total vegetables

  • fresh spinach
  • kale
  • carrots
  • celery
  • broccoli
  • bok choy
  • squash or zucchini
  • avocado (I recommend no more than 1/4 to 1/3 of a whole avocado)

On top of the blender:

  • about 8 whole raw almonds*
  • a handful of raw oats*

Blend everything together well and serve immediately. The vegetables listed are ones that I think mix in and can't be detected once everything is blended. It's balancing the flavors of the fruit is actually more tricky - they can be too sour. I usually have part of a banana or a few green grapes to the daily mix for their natural sweetness.
