Sweet Green Smoothie Recipe

sweet green smoothie memories and words

Working in a coffee bar has its benefits. I learned how to perfect my milk foam skills, and I learned how to make smoothies. When I make smoothies at home, I know what ingredients go with what. It is rare when I make a gross smoothie. Is that a little arrogant? Nah, it’s the truth. How else would I find myself creating the sweet green smoothie?

As y’all know by now, I am trying to eat more greens, and drinking smoothies allows me to do that. My sweet green smoothie is a perfect mix of healthy greens and bright fruits. You can’t taste the avocado or the spinach, but the mango and pineapple don’t overpower the smoothie. It is a perfect balance. Try it out and let me know what you think!

Notes

Frozen fruits can work with this smoothie. I use them on occasion when produce isn’t in season, or when I am busy and not too sure if I will be able to make it that week. Collagen isn’t an essential part of the smoothie; I add it to help with my skin.
You can also add a squirt of lime juice to give it a nice pick-me-up.
