There’s no denying the fact that veggies and greens, in particular, aren’t the tastiest foods out there. However, there’s still a way to enjoy their vitamins, fiber, and healthy fats by making them delicious and refreshing with the right recipe. Check out these 5 green juices that you can easily make in a blender or a juicer!
1. Creamy Avocado & Banana Green Smoothie
If there’s one worldwide trend that is actually good for our health, it’s the craze over avocados. The healthy saturated fats and great variety of vitamins in the avocado make it the perfect smoothie ingredient. Add its creamy texture, and it’s an amazing base for a number of recipes. In this one, all you need is an avocado, a ripe banana, protein powder of choice, and some of your favorite greens (kale, spinach, celery, parsley, peppermint, etc.).
2. Ginger Celery Juice
Celery is a great source of fiber, given its low calorie count. That way, you get your daily intake of fiber while also boosting your digestion and reaping the benefits of ginger as well. Add in some lime and cucumber to complete and complement the taste. Peppermint and honey are recommended to those who don’t like bitter drinks.
3. Green Detox Smoothie
Blend chia seeds together with leafy greens like kale, spinach, romaine, peppermint, and parsley. Add in a little honey, some lemon juice, and half a cucumber to balance the taste and make your green juice extra rich in Vitamin C. These ingredients make up the perfect detox drink, so it’s best to have it in the morning before breakfast and/or coffee.
4. Pineapple Green Smoothie
Step up your green juice game by introducing electrolyte-packed coconut water (unsweetened) and tangy-sweet pineapple to the recipe. Don’t forget to add loads of spinach and half a cucumber to get the right texture and flavor. If you like green apples, feel free to include them in the recipe.
5. The Ultimate Green Smoothie
Take your regular green juice and turn it into a meal. How? Add in high-protein Greek yogurt to the mix of green veggies, put in a little honey, a green apple, some banana, and top it off with blueberries. In terms of veggies, be sure to use kale, broccoli, romaine, and of course, spinach. If you’re aiming for a very filling smoothie, you can add an avocado to the mix, but don’t overdo it because the yogurt is fatty, too.
