My Favorite Green Smoothies

Half the country is enjoying the start of spring and the other half (ahem me) is simply dreaming about it. But either way, our food is about to lighten up and heavy winter foods will be a thing of the past. I'm ready for it. I've been craving fresh cold fruit, vegetables, and crunchy sour snacks all week.

This upcoming shift inspired me to share my favorite green smoothies with Liz's readers.

I’m hoping to get you all on the Green Smoothie train. Smoothies rock in so many ways – they are easy, quick, full of whole foods, and please little kids and big kids alike. If you need to sneak more green vegetables into your son, daughter, husband, or self here is the way to do it.

I’m sharing my two favorite green smoothies. They are both vegan, gluten free, and contain some healthy fat and protein so you are filled up and satisfied. The joy of smoothies is that they are ever adaptable so please get creative and toss your favorites into the blender. Here are the two best green smoothies…

The Rainforest is a light blend of greens, fresh fruits and coconut milk while The Dino is a nuttier blend of almond and kale.


  1. Wow, i love the green smoothie, coconut milk would make this taste so so good!

  2. Delicious blog and snippets of life on the island! Another easy and insanely delicious smoothie is grapes, arugula, lemon, and a pinch of really good salt like Himalayan pink salt. And water of course.

    I couldn't agree more with your philosophy on food and nutrition. Having grown up in India totally vegetarian, with no tinned or store-bought prepared foods, no low-fat dairy, and seasonal produce cooked in fresh home-made ghee, I was bored to tears here in the US when everyone went on and on about carbs, macros, protein, fibre, and antioxidants. Whatever happened to just eating clean food that you could get at the market?! Don't know if you've ever read Eat Your Heart Out but it's a telling story of why the West is obsessed with such a sterile attitude towards food. I'm looking forward to more of your recipes. :-)

  3. What an amazing looking smoothie! I might make one of these today...yum!

  4. Slim smoothies are made by blending the fruit and yogurt together. How much fruit and yogurt is added to the smoothie depends on your tastes.
