So the other day I was googling ‘green smoothies’ because, no matter how hard I try, I’ve never had the ability to create a green smoothie that was actually green. They always taste delicious, but they come out a gross brown color.
About halfway through my googling, I came across the secret to creating a green green smoothie.
It seems so ridiculous because it’s SO simple, but I’m telling you, it made all the difference for me.
Their basic formula is as follows:
2 CUPS LEAFY GREENS + 2 CUPS LIQUID BASE + 3 CUPS RIPE FRUIT
I actually modified mine slightly from that basic formula but it still came out great.
I can’t wait to experiment with different varieties now that I’ve got the color thing down…the possibilities are endless! Not to mention the whole thing takes about 5 minutes from start to finish…hard to beat that for a drink that offers protein, fruits, vegetables, vitamins, minerals and fiber!
