Just got such a blender, which was the very first recipe I attempted in itboy could it be good! Yummy.
So flattered that you simply chose certainly one of VK’s recipes to test first, and you enjoyed it!
Attempted and love this recipe.I frequently use flax meal within my smoothies,especially if I personally use water. Flax meal adds extra nutrients and fiber and curbs hunger. Love Chia seeds too.
Appreciate your input, Ewelina — glad you enjoyed reading this!
My spouse and i are beginning eco-friendly smoothie mornings. This recipe looks great! I simply get one question: why if it is offered immediately? Is which makes it the night time before, an awful idea?
Pleasure, when you liquify vegetables and fruits, they lose nutrients and also the flavors go flat too. You make the most benefits and finest taste should you drink it immediately!
why green spinach or any eco-friendly leafy vegetable generally utilized in apple smoothie&....
Supreet, getting a leafy eco-friendly within the smoothie adds lots of fiber and antioxidants without adding an excessive amount of a &"eco-friendly&" flavor. The vegetables include a pleasant contrast towards the sweetness and sugars within the apple. It’s a terrific way to obtain the goodness of vegetables, damaged lower to your bodies cells.
I simply attempted this recipe. I had been great..
Used to do a few alterations into it though..
I made use of flax meal when i ran from Chai and haven’t had the ability to purchase more yet. I didn’t have agave, and so i used a couple of chunks of honeydew. I made use of unsweetened organic van. grain milk. It's so excellent. Appreciate posting this type of tasty recipe..
This can be a tasty smoothie! Can make it again! My hubby even enjoyed it! Thanks a lot for any great recipe!
Well here goes! Today I bough my nutra bullet I'm searching just vegie smoothies with milk and whey protein protein does anybody have ideas or tips on this regards jane
Jane, veggie smoothies is going to do you plenty of excellent, why add dairy? You don’t require it, nor does anyone require the milk that nature formulated specifically for calves. Enjoy!
Can leftover smoothies be produced into popsicles? TU!
Rosalind, that’s a good idea!
Smoothies have to be consumed within twenty minutes for full dietary benefits. Beyond that, they lose their dietary and " floating " fibrous punch but they are still refreshing and certainly a better option over canned sodas along with other crappy caloric-laden alternatives!
Also, I don’t share America’s dependence on sugars or fats. I've found adding agave or other sweetner absolutely unnecessary within this smoothie or other. Natural foods speak on their own, need NO enhancements and that i enjoy them within their natural form.
Your mileage will be different.
P.S. Nava is completely right. There’s pointless for that nondairy (or dairy) addition! Fruits and vegetables and seeds pack their very own flavor punch and stand by themselves. Don’t realise why smoothie-makers feel a necessity to cloak their natural splendor with dairy or non-dairy (or added sweeteners).
Only time I personally use non-dairy (unsweetened soy milk in bit) is within my evening treat &- a &"milkshake&" of blueberry, unsweetened dark cacao and peanut butter and ice.
Wow, many thanks with this recipe. I loved it a great deal.I made use of organic soymilk. it had been so great.
Thanks a lot glad you enjoyed it!
Just chose to make this sans sweetener also it’s great. Even my two year old wants it.

Used granny cruz apple, green spinach,cucumber,water, fresh lemon juice, agave syrup also it was beautiful.

Thanks! I think you'll return frequently.
Carrying out a eco-friendly smoothie thirty day challenge and that i had that one at the moment. Scrumptious, and incredibly refreshing. Thanks.
I had been just a little reluctant around the proportions I didn’t think one apple could be enough, however this smoothie is amazing. I left the skins on and put in a number of cashews instead of the milk. I added cinnamon and vanilla only for kicks and i'm loving this smoothie. Bravo!!
Interesting feedback, Kamma. Love your tweaks — that’s why simple recipes are wonderful they function as templates that individuals can transform to match their very own tastes.
It was the very first eco-friendly smoothie I’ve available and that i like it! May have me hooked. (I added a blueberry into it, it tastes great!)
I made use of coconut water also it was scrumptious and refreshing!
Will the lemon not spoil the milk?
My try in a smoothie. I had been reluctant to make use of green spinach, however it tastes very good. The aftertaselte normally takes some adjustment! Off and away to a wonderful start though! Just recipe!
I don’t like green spinach. So what can I sub?
For those who have a higher-speed blender, try collard vegetables. However, you’ll be amazed, you won’t even taste the green spinach!
