No Grass Green Smoothie, Perfectly Easy & Delicious

myohmyitsrhy- No Grass Green Smoothie

I DID IT!

Finally! A green smoothie that doesn’t taste like grass. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve attempted to make a green smoothie. Some call me the master of making a dang bad green smoothie. But no worries! After years of failure, I think I’ve finally mastered it. Mango and pineapple were on sale at Aldi so I picked some up with no intention of making a smoothie. I then learned using light colored fruit is crucial for making a green smoothie. There are a few other tips I’ve picked up from my failures too… 

GREEN SMOOTHIE TIPS

  1. Don’t use arugula
    100% do not recommend trying arugula in a smoothie. I tried this one time, it only took one to learn to NEVER do that again. Arugula is great for many other things, but a smoothie not so much. The flavor is very strong and overpowering.
    *Instead try using spinach. If you have a high-speed blender you could try kale too.
  2. Use light-colored fruits
    If you want the smoothie to be green don’t use berries. I’ve tried multiple times to make a “green smoothie” with mixed berries. This is where the purple/brown color came from. It was still tasty, just ugly and not green.
    *Instead try using mango and pineapple
  3. Keep it simple
    Don’t feel like you need to use fancy ingredients. Make a delicious smoothie with ingredients you have handy.

JUICE VS SMOOTHIE

What is the difference between a juice and smoothie? Both are easy ways to get a serving a fruit and vegetables in, but what is the difference?

What is juice?

  • Juicing is an extraction of water and nutrients from fruits and veggies using a juicer. The fiber is separated from the juices and usually discarded. Since the fiber is missing juices are digested at a quicker rate.

What is a smoothie?

  • A smoothie is made using a blender. Fruits and veggies are put into a blender whole and blended until smooth, leaving the fiber, keeping you full for longer. Smoothies also allow you to do awesome add-ins like protein powder, chia seeds, or fat.
