OK, maybe they don’t really think that, but I think the perception of the green smoothie is that it isn’t tasty. That couldn’t be any further from the truth. Honestly, it can be quite delicious! Green smoothies are an excellent way to get in your greens, start your morning {or pre-workout/post workout} on the right foot! The other great thing about them? Completely customizable! Make it how you want to, add what you love, leave what you don’t. Start super basic like this recipe and then work your way up from there!

    I’m totally stuck in the beginner green smoothie phase. More fruit to greens. I do like the idea of coconut milk in it!

    I’m one of those people who is like ewww gross. And only because the first green drink I ever had was a Kale smoothie juice that I picked up at the store. Now I had enjoyed many smoothie drinks from the same brand so I thought the kale one would be great. I was wrong. One of the worse things I ever tasted. I think I had nightmares about it. ;)

    So I’m looking at your green smoothie and I think I can finally say that I will give them a go again. Yours looks so good and refreshing!

      Julie – I’ve got another smoothie I’m posting soon that you would absolutely LOVE! It’s seriously SO yummy you would never think you’d be drinking a cup full of green nutrients. I hear ya on having a bad taste in your mouth.. nothing worse than that! Give it another go, you may be pleasantly surprised!
