Green Smoothies Day 6 of 30 Days of Healthy Homemade Summer Treats

30 Days of Healthy Homemade Summer Treats

Most of my smoothies are at least a little green. Spinach is so easy to add, and doesn’t change the flavor all that much. Kale works well too.

But if you want something that will definitely work as a green smoothie, with a nice green shade, there are some things you should do. Skip the berries, for example. I love berries in my smoothies, but you’ll get a more muddy color if you mix the red of the berries with the green of the spinach. It’s not that appealing to kids, while green can be a fun color. Don’t add chocolate or cacao nibs either, as once again, it will have more of a brown color. Stick with ingredients that will allow the green to show. Now if your kids don’t mind a brownish tint, go for the berries and/or chocolate. We’re going for delicious, after all, along with healthy.


1-2 handfuls spinach
1-4 celery sticks
1 banana, peeled
1 apple, sliced
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup ice

Place all ingredients in blender. Puree until smooth. Add milk, juice or water if smoothie is too thick. Serve.
