I  have one typically for breakfast.

 

I have low iron so I try to eat as much spinach as I can. I added citrus fruit to help absorb the iron.

My smoothie typically consists of:

                                              cup of pineapple (fresh or frozen)

                                              A peeled seeded orange

                                              two generous handfuls of fresh spinach

                                              1 cup vanilla almond milk

                                               2 table spoons protein powder

                                              lots of ice

 

It makes a generous 20oz, but makes for a very filling breakfast that will give you good energy.

Hi, I usually have a green smoothie every morning, banana and some other fruit at lunch, and for dinner a fruit smoothie and a big salad with some baked potatoes (jacket potatoes) , or baked celery roots (jacket celery root) :). My green smoothie contains: 4-5 bananas, one apple and 300-500g spinach, plus 1 and 1/2 cups of water.

I think spinach, kale, and chard add a nicer flavor than romaine to sweet smoothies.  Just my preference.  :)

I do one a day for breakfast/early lunch.  I usually pour it in a jar and take it to work.  Spinach, kale and chard are my favorite green additions.  I'm less fond of romaine and dandelion. 

 

Since my friend turned me on to green smoothies about a year ago, I've been reviewing the recipes I try out.  You can check them out on www.smoothiequest.com.  Have fun!

Here's my first and most favorite Green Drink.  It is a blended drink. Traditionally smoothies have a milky quantity, coconut, soy, hemp, hazelnut, etc. but this is ust a simple blended green drink.

 

Frozen strawberries (I get them at Kroger in a 10 pd bag, nothing added, just frozen strawberries),

add fresh-squeezed orange juice (again, Kroger, I love them for squeezing it fresh daily -- heaven!), or you can squeeze them yourself, but it takes quite a few.

blend this up in a blender,

then add in spinach leaves.

You can start with equal quantities of each, then 50% strawberries/OJ mixture and 50% spinach, then move on to more greens than fruit, like Trish1128 said.

This mixture is simple, you can get your greens for the day and tastes so awesome, I can't describe it.  Addicting.

Watermelon mint smoothie sounds really delicious. I try to limit to about 2 times a day, any more and it gets tedious cleaning the blender, i'm slightly lazy ;)

One of my favorites among smoothie recipe is the strawberry banana smoothie with green apples. 1 liter a day is enough for me, since I didn't eat complex carbs at night so I made this smoothie after my workout and at dinner.

I drink about 1.5 cups a day but if I am on a detox I will drink up to 3 litres a day. And I normally use a ratio of 70/30 for veggies to fruit.

I have a smoothie for breakfast, most of my life I had coffee on an empty stomach.

I need the fuel to last throughout the day and my stomach can't handle the acidity of the coffee anymore although I love dark espresso!!!


I write amazing books on raw foods, vegan recipes, health and battling addictions for under $5! Organic herbs and plants.

This is a place where I think a lot of guys live, and it can be frustrating. Even when I was playing sports, going to the gym, biking around town or hitting the gym five days a week, I still wouldn’t reach a point where I could look at myself and say, “I’m in great shape.” No matter how hard I would work, it felt like something was missing.

New to all this

Sorry I am not a veggie.....is this allowed?

What I am interested in though, I am 67 and suffer badly with coughs and colds. Have suffered all my life and when I get them, I am really, really bad. I want to up my immunity if possible to resist these bugs and want to go down the green smoothie route.

I have looked good and hard at lots of recipes and in fact made one myself yesterday but it didn't taste very nice. Made another today which tasted better but it did have blueberries, apple, pear and two bananas in it along with the spinach.

I'd like to get maybe 5 different recipes taking in different vegetables, green and root, with a high percent of veg as the base but it must taste good. Is this impossible bearing in mind lots of people use a higher percent of fruit to veg to get a pleasant taste.

Any suggestions greatly received.

This forum is for vegetarians and vegans and for those looking to transition to meat-free living.

There really isn't a magic formula for health. Eating healthily, exercising, getting enough sleep, minimizing stress, meditating, stopping eating meat...all good things.

@ plant821:

Of course non-veggies can use VB

If you would like to improve your health, might I suggest that you look into the vegetarian/ vegan lifestyle?

You will find a lot of info on VB

By being vegan, for e.g., you can reduce your risk of diseases like coronary artery disease and colorectal cancer, amongst many other diseases...

Any Qs just ask

Why is the suffering and killing of animals wrong? Because the value of a sentient organism's life is priceless. They are their own beings and have their own lives and loves. They have higher emotions and thought processes. Their minds are different from ours in degree, not kind - meaning that fundamentally there are critical similarities.

I make a smoothie almost every day for breakfast. It's very healthy and the best way to feel up in the morning

I drink a green smoothie every morning, so about 16 oz a day. Does anyone have any suggestions for smoothie blenders or mixers. I just use a typical blender and i doesn't do a very good job. I know there are blenders/mixers that are specifically designed for smoothie.
