Do people still drink green smoothies?

I used to have a green drink every single day.

In some form or another.

Sometimes a juice, sometimes a smoothie.

But over the past few months I haven’t been too into it.

Now all of a sudden – probably the change of weather/seasons colliding – I’m back on my green drink routine. Which is great because dark, leafy greens are in season. And this particular fall green smoothie pairs greens with subtle autumnal flavors that are easing me into the cooler weather. Whenever that decides to show up in Missouri.

My simplest green smoothie formula is:
2 cups greens
1 cup liquid
1 cup fruit
+ all the super-boosters you desire {see notes section in recipe below}.

I generally like smoothies to be a thin, rather than on the thicker side. Somewhere between a smoothie and a juice. I also like to add ice after it’s blended, not during. But you can adjust both of these depending on your own textural preferences.

This fall green smoothie uses a secret ingredient, and even if you don’t think you’re into it I urge you to try it. Because raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar is my best friend. A few tablespoons of this and your tastebuds and digestive system and brain will thank you. I know it might sounds weird {and often its ‘s acquired taste} but it adds just the right boost of tart and natural sweetness. Especially when paired with apples, pears and cinnamon.

I like to use a combination of ½ water and ½ nut milk for the liquid portion, but you could certainly do all of one if desired. This smoothie is of a thinner consistency, feel free to adjust the liquid portion as you see fit. Intentionally, this is not a very sweet green drink, so a touch of honey or stevia could be added if you prefer.

    I’m like you. I prefer a smoothie that is almost juice, but not quite! I love the idea of adding ice after blending not during. I’ll be taking note of that.

    Lady, thank you for this. I’ve been working to get back on the smoothie bandwagon this month. My husband loves them too, so we’ll try this one next week. And I’ll try ice after too, love that.
