8 Best Green Smoothie Recipes for Any Time of Day

Who doesn’t want to sneak an extra serving of greens into their day? Whether you’re a smoothie pro, or just juice-curious, green smoothies have likely piqued your interest. Luckily they are easy to make, and no, don’t taste like a salad.

Start with a serving of Vega One or Protein Smoothie. Look—that already gives you three (or two if you’re using Protein Smoothie) servings of greens. In your blender add a serving of Vega One, a cup of almond milk and a handful of your favorite green (spinach usually wins). Blend with ice or a frozen banana to help sweeten your smoothie.

Experimentation is fun, and if you want a smoothie that is guaranteed to be delicious, it’s probably best to start with the tried and true.

Any time’s a good time for a green smoothie
