The Basic Green Smoothie

I am a big smoothie fan especially now that I have a Blendtec, it just makes smoothie making so much easier. I personally love the colour and taste of green smoothies, and there are so many difference combinations out there. They are simple to make and just plain delicious. To keep things fun, rotate your greens and even fruit.  Let your creative juices flow and see what kind of green smoothie you will blend.

Basic Green Smoothie


  • 1-2 frozen bananas
  • Greens (I used 8 rainbow chard leaves, but spinach, lettuce, or collard greens work just as well)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1-2 dates, soaked


  1. Place everything in your high powered blender, and blend until creamy and well combined. I used my Blendtec, but a regular blender or even a food processor would work.
  2. Pour into a glass and sip with your glass or stainless steel straw. [/print_this]
