Green vegetables are the perfect addition to your juice or smoothie! Green vegetable smoothies alkalize your body, help it absorb nutrients, and have so many other health benefits like helping you get in the recommended daily amount of fruits and vegetables. They can also be so tasty! It may be intimidating to make one, but once you have the formula down you’ll want to drink a green vegetable smoothie or juice every day!
To get you started, we compiled a list of 15 green vegetable smoothies and juices from our Food Monster App!

This 4-Ingredient Green Smoothie by Christina Bedetta is ideal for anyone who is skeptical about drinking their greens! With just four simple ingredients, it can be made in a pinch, and, although it is packed with plenty of nutritious, super-alkalizing greens, you would never sense it from the flavor alone (the vibrant green color is the giveaway). The key to achieving a wonderful sweet flavor in this smoothie is to make sure your bananas are nice and ripe (as bananas ripen, more and more of their starch content gets converted to sugar, perfect for naturally sweetened recipes!).

Your baking and raw vegan recipes will contain much less fat than usual recipes. If you use all plant-based, whole foods, your recipes will contain NO cholesterol. A good idea is to have some water based chia gel on hand in the fridge to add as an egg substitute to cakes or cookies, one tablespoon of gel replaces one egg. Prepared chia gel will keep for up to 2 weeks. One delicious way is in this Superfood Green Smoothie by Kibby Miller!

15. Tropical Green Spirulina Smoothie
The flavor of pineapple in superfood smoothies are strong enough to overpower the sharpness of spirulina. Start small with just 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon and slowly add more as you adjust to this new flavor. Spirulina is excellent for your health. This is what the University of Maryland’s Medical Center has to say about it: “Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids, antioxidants that can help protect cells from damage. It contains nutrients, including B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid).” Do remember to buy spirulina powder from a trusted brand, preferably organic, as most things on this planet can be affected by toxins, unfortunately. Spirulina is made of over 60 percent protein, and a complete one at that, too! Just a dash of it in your Tropical Green Spirulina Smoothie by Clémence Moulaert is beneficial to your health.
