I was surprised earlier this week when I saw this post from 2015 trending, My Favorite (Not So) Green Smoothie. I hit published eight years ago and I do not think I have made it in at least half that time but if memory serves me right, it is still a very tasty one!
Lately I have been trying to up my veggie intake and outside of a some green beans or carrots with dinner the idea of a big bowl of salad has not been very appetizing. For the last few weeks I have been playing around with a combination of a smoothies but my latest has spinach, almond milk, mango, banana, vanilla protein, and chia seeds and it is quite tasty. However, it’s not the exact flavor I am looking for so I am going to continue tweaking until I have found one that I love.
Here are some of the combinations I have been trying and when I do find the one I LOVE the idea of these green smoothie freezer packets I saw on Pinterest. You can find a common theme below of “best green smoothie” as a top keyword if you want to do your own search! Do not have gestational diabetes (thank goodness) but do not want a recipe with added sugar, looking for a protein-packed green smoothie. I have also found that I am not very partial to pineapple or cinnamon but I am trying the combinations as sometimes I am pleasantly surprised:
