When the weather is warmer, smoothies for breakfast tick all the boxes!
Your favorite fruit and veggies are in season and they taste great in a smoothie.
In warmer weather I want to eat smaller or lighter meals

Do green smoothies really taste good?

Yes I can hear the trepidation in your voice – But with the right combos and starting off slowly you can get into having a regular green smoothie for breakfast and ACTUALLY love them and feel great!!
Another cool aspect – they don’t have to be GREEN in color to be a Green smoothie. This makes it easier if you are trying to bring greens into your families diet.


Here are just some of the benefits all these greens will bring !

Leafy greens contain chlorophyll, fibre, lutein, calcium, folate, vitamin C, and beta carotene. The nutrients found in greens will reduce the risk of cancer, lower blood pressure, lower bad cholesterol levels, help with better digestion , support eye health, fight harmful free-radicals, and boost your immune system.

Lets talk about what “Greens” in a smoothie actually are!

  • Kale – Every one has heard of Kale and it either brings joy or fear to a person. The secret with kale is to know what to use with it. Kale can be bitter, so start with baby kale and when using it in a smoothie, the fruits to use are sweeter fruits like mango or pineapple
  • Spinach – It is a mild tasting green so it is a perfect one to start with. Even milder is baby spinach. Due to how mild it is in taste, it is perfect for fruit that is not as sweet like all the berries, kiwi, apples, pears and avocados.
  • Romaine Lettuce – aka Cos Lettuce is the mildest of the greens. It will work with all the fruits. This is perfect for kids and fussy eaters to start getting use to the idea of a green smoothie. Try it with melons.
  • Swiss Chard – aka Silverbeet.This sits between spinach and kale with bitterness – So it is another great one to try. Works well with banana and citrus fruits in a smoothie.
  • Collard Greens – These are in between spinach and kale with bitterness. They work well with berries, pears, kiwi and stone fruits like peaches and nectarines. One thing to note is that the leaves are fibrous so you will need a strong blender or extra blending time to get a smooth consistency.
  • Bok Choy – An Asian vegetable and it sits between Kale and spinach. It does have a mild peppery taste but it works with all fruits.
