I’m back with another green smoothie today! Did you see my Red Velvet smoothie & Simple Green Smoothies cookbook review yesterday? I’m taking the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge from Simple Green Smoothies and I’m two days in. Already I’m feeling excited about the change. While I’m not necessarily making their smoothie recipes, I’m excited to conjure up some recipes of my own and share them with you. I haven’t decided if I want to make thirty NEW smoothies and post them all, but I’m leaning towards it because I think it would be fun and help keep me accountable. It’s the beginning of the year and I can bet I’m not the only one that could use some accountability.
So while this is kinda-sorta similar to my Pineapple Coconut Green Smoothie, this one is simpler – only three ingredients! I love me a good three ingredient recipe. Don’t you? So easy. So quick. SO delicious. Well.. in this case, I’m sure not all three ingredient recipes are super tasty. I had to work today and didn’t have time before I went in to blend up my smoothie so as soon as I got home I was on the job. The bonus was that Steve was available to be able to share it with him while it was still fresh. We buy a large bag of leafy power greens from Costco that includes spinach, kale, and rainbow chard. While spinach is good, having the three is even BETTER! We also buy our fruit in the freezer section as well. A great way to get organic fruit at a really good price – plus, having it in the freezer means you can have it on hand any time you want. Score!

Hi! Can you recommend other ingredients that I can use instead of coconut milk? Thank you!
Great recipe Yvonne, Gemma T. I love to add pitted dates (Medjool or deglet) for adding sweetness. Dates are really good for the body in so many ways and store well.
What an excellent idea – we use dates all the time!
Tried that last night and enjoyed it a lot! Next time though I’m gonna try it with honey instead of coconut milk. What do you think of that?
I think honey would be a great addition! I don’t know that I don’t know that I would get rid of the liquid all together (because you need some of it) but a couple of tablespoons added wouldn’t be bad at all!
