Here is a step by step guideline to make the perfect green smoothie and you may print the infographic below after reviewing the instructions!

How To Make The Perfect Green Smoothie

1.5 to 2 Cups Of Liquid Base

To avoid chunks in your smoothie you will want to blend your leafy greens and liquid base first when using a regular blender. Don’t feel obligated to stick to one liquid, you can interchange or combine coconut water, juice, and your favourite milk substitute for a new, delicious flavour every day of the week!

Note: If you have a high powered blender such as a ninja, or vitamix you will not need to blend liquids and greens first.

2 Cups Of Leafy Greens

Our green smoothies follow the 60/40 formula: 60% fruits to 40% leafy greens.

Leafy greens provide great nutritional value to your green smoothie they are loaded with phytonutrients, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

3 Cups Of Ripe Fresh And/Or Frozen Fruit

Ripe fruit gives green smoothies the perfect amount of sweetness, but other natural sweeteners can be added if you prefer.

Ditch the ice by using frozen fruits.

Add Your Favourite Superfood

Don’t be afraid to get fancy with your ingredients. We love adding at least one, superfood such as raw cacao powder to boost our daily nutritional intake.
