There are a lot of green smoothie websites on the internet with a lot of great information. However, a lot of sites can get pretty salesy which might put you off. I get it. People are trying to make a living. I don’t fault them for it. However, I have 3 favourite websites that aren’t sales-forward, provide great information, and solid recipes. Here are my top 3 green smoothie websites:
I love the emphasis on both RAW and GREEN… really green. You can see from the photos that the recipes really do all come out the colour green. Love it.
What I really like about this website is that you can sort through the recipes by specific health needs:
Simple Green Smoothies
A lovely, highly visual website that will let you feast with your eyes as well as give you the recipes to let you feast on delicious green smoothies:
My Own Recipes
And of course, I’ve got my own go-to recipes. I don’t often follow other people’s recipes anymore, though I do enjoy getting ideas from them. I’ve got my old favourites to get me through most mornings.
Recently, my friend Cynthia Millman, co-author with Frankie Manning, Frankie Manning: Ambassador of Lindy Hop, recently sent me a great smoothie recipe to try. I was excited when she sent it over because I had most of the ingredients on hand already. In particular, I’ve had some cranberries...Read More »
Have you ever tried a Shamrock Shake for St. Patrick’s Day?
Well St. Patrick’s Day is coming up on March 17th so now is the perfect time to try it!
The hallmarks of a Shamrock Shake are its creamy thickness, mint flavour, and often there’s some chocolate thrown in for good measure. And...Read More »
You know what’s way creamier than putting almond milk into your smoothie? Almond butter or whole almonds if you have a high speed blender like a Vitamix. Also, if you use any protein powder (I like a good vegan vanilla protein powder most mornings) then just plain water is fine...Read More »
This smoothie is an Ode to Elvis and a real treat!
You may have heard that Elvis’ favourite sandwich was peanut butter and banana… Specifically, he loved butter-soaked grilled banana and peanut butter sandwiches. Well we can do without the heavy butter and bread and just take the super flavourful...Read More »
Energizing! Stimulating! This smoothie is very different from my “usual” green smoothies. Matcha is very stimulating and not something that I consume every day, but it’s delicious and really peps you up if you’ve had a late night the evening before. I also like to have it as a proactive...Read More »
Satisfying, creamy, nutritious, delicious!
So here’s the thing about the photo I used for this blog post. The colour is so beautiful, but usually I change that colour by adding a bunch of spinach WHICH DOESN’T CHANGE THE FLAVOUR AT ALL. Just the colour and the nutritional value. It’s super yummy!!
Ingredients...Read More »
If you’ve never had a smoothie with avocado, you’re in for a real treat!
I don’t think there’s any way to create a more perfectly smooth smoothie than to include some avocado. The texture is sublime! I don’t do it often because avocados are way too expensive where I live, but...Read More »
I was reminded of the delicious Date Almond smoothie at Fresh Restaurants in Toronto while browsing through Carla Lalli Music’s recipes. Her recipe included an orange and didn’t have any spinach so mine is a bit different. I suspect that the Fresh smoothie used a lot more...Read More »
Are you feeling festive? The holiday season is upon us, and there’s no reason why you can’t add the spirit of the holidays to your green smoothie. This smoothie really is a treat! Warm, spicy, cozy, and delicious, this healthy smoothie tastes like the holidays.
I’ve adapted from a recipe from
Ok, this smoothie doesn’t have any green in it… it’s all orange! Energize your day with this healthy smoothie that includes one of my favourite ingredients; butternut squash. Yes, you can have butternut squash raw, and it makes a lovely, frothy smoothie. The combination of the citrus of the orange...Read More »
Cacao, the most pure superfood form of chocolate, provides antioxidants and energy in this delicious green morning smoothie.
Mango is full of carotenoids that are wonderful for your skin and coconut oil is amazing for your skin, both inside and out. And the flavour of mango captures a tropical feeling that pairs perfectly with the taste of a good quality coconut oil.
Use any type of kale that you...Read More »
Naturally sweet pineapple pairs wonderfully with kale… and the best part of this smoothie might just be the intense, bright green colour!
Pineapple is a great fruit to use when you’re adding a lot of strong flavoured superfoods to your smoothie. It’s one of the more powerful flavours that you can...Read More »
Spinach, raspberries, and banana form the basis for this favourite morning smoothie.
If I had to give you a go-to smoothie recipe, this would probably be it. It’s probably my very favourite smoothie, and though it’s considered a “green” smoothie, the deep colour of the raspberries actually makes it very red....Read More »
How “super” is your food?
The word “superfood” is thrown around a lot, and there are truly an amazing number of foods that are wonderful for your health. There are common foods, like blueberries for example, that are filled with antioxidants, but I’m not going to speak about those. There are...Read More »
