Additional Tips

  • If you want to give your smoothie an added boost of protein, one scoop of your favorite protein powder can be added when the fruits are included in the blender. 
  • Freeze your greens too! By freezing not only the fruit but your spinach, this can help chill the smoothie without having to use ice cubes and watering down the mixture.
  • Need a little extra bit of sweetness? Try adding naturally sweet fruits such as apples, berries, pears, and pitted dates.  This not only keeps the recipe interesting but it helps to sweeten a smoothie without adding artificial sugar.  
  • Want to stay on track with a busy schedule? Then this recipe is perfect for making the night before a busy work day so you can grab and go!
  • Add in organic hemp, chia seeds, and flax seeds for extra vitamins and minerals.
