Two Vegan Green Smoothies!

Eating a vegan diet doesn’t necessarily mean that you are getting in all the nutrients and vitamins you need on a daily/weekly basis. Smoothies (whichever color they may end up!) are a great way to pack a ton of nutrients into your body.

Green Smoothies

Below, I have shown you how to make two different green smoothies. I used a NutriBullet to blend mine, but any blender should do the trick!

The Green Smoothie

I love this smoothie, I would say I base most of my “green” smoothies off this recipe. It is really easy to swap the fruit and greens for your preference!

Perk: it doesn’t taste like you are eating liquid spinach and is a great thing to eat for breakfast!

The Green Smoothie

You will need:

  • 2 cups of kale or spinach (if I have both, I typically do 1/2 of each)
  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 cup mango (I used frozen mango)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds, for extra health benefits and Omega-3’s!
  • Enough water to blend (roughly about 1 cup)

To do:

  1. Chop up the apple small enough to blend, I usually cut it in about eight pieces
  2. Add all the ingredients to the blender and blend away! If it isn’t mixing well, add more water and continue.

*If the taste of the smoothie is too “salad-tasting” for you, add a bit of blueberries to help with the flavor!

Mint & Ginger Green Smoothie

The combination of mint and ginger creates such a great taste in your mouth, this is one of my favorite flavor combo’s. Just some of the benefits of ginger includes helping lower blood sugar, indigestion and menstrual pain!


You will need:

  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 2-4 tsp mint
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1/2-1 cup kale
  • 1-2 cups of water or almond milk

To do:

      1. Make sure the ginger is finely chopped or grated
      2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
      3. Add mint for decoration!

*Almond milk creates a more creamy smoothie, but water helps keeps the caloric intake down!
