Vegan MoFo #2: Green Smoothies!

Perfect in the morning, for a wake-me-up/perk-me-up breakfast (bye-bye coffee)!

Perfect for an in-between snack (and healthier than all the processed snacks out there)!

Perfect for you, for me, now, later, anytime. Simple. Delicious. And so good for you.  I mean,

it's GREEN.

Here's my green smoothie for the day:
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Blueberries
  • Banana
  • Cucumber
  • Coconut water
  • Ground flaxseed
  • Throw 'em in the Vitamix and let the green magic happen.


What's your favorite green smoothie recipes?

All the best and yummiest to you.


  1. Your smoothie sounds great. Mine are a bit more simple. My favorite breakfast smoothie is spinach, blueberries, water, and cucumber. If I have time I prefer to make a nice juice but I feel like I am wasting so much removing the veggie pulp.

  2. That's what's so great about green smoothies! You find your favorite green, load it up, toss in a favorite fruit, and you're pretty much set. I like playing around with different varieties.

    I'm excited to have a juicer sometime in the near future - I understand the feeling of wasting with the pulp. Obviously, whole fruits and veggies are best for us. That's why I love smoothies - seems like it's the best of both worlds, I guess. I'm sure the pulp could be used for something... hmm....

  3. Very new to this but could you tell me how much of each item?
