Creamy Green Smoothie Recipe (Green Detox Smoothie)

This Green Detox Smoothie is our favorite way to wake up in the morning.

I’m NOT a morning person. Since having Henry, waking up earlier is a must, and that means amazing breakfast recipes are also a must! As a busy Mom, I just don’t have time to slave over breakfast like I used to. These day’s I rely on simple and quick recipes as we are running out the door to fuel my morning, and smoothie recipes have become by go-to!

I love that you can make them quickly, keep them healthy, and fill them with extra goodies to help you stay energized on the go. If I could give you a big double high five right now I would!

This Detox Green Smoothie Recipe is the breakfast of champions. It will keep you full and energized and tastes AMAZING! What’s not to love.

You might have seen recently on Instagram (are we friends? say hi!) that I went on a trip to Detroit to celebrate the launch of Tillamook Dairy products at Kroger stores nationwide. We called it #LegendDairyWeekend and legendary it was! What an incredible experience with an AMAZING group of people. We had so much fun, learned so much, and ate like Kings and Queens. Tillamook and Kroger showcased so many beautiful and amazing products and we just had so much fun.

If you get a chance to visit Detroit, you MUST stay at the Detroit Foundation Hotel and you need to eat at the Grey Ghost Restaurant. I loved everything about the trip, especially celebrating with this wonderful group of bloggers. I’m so lucky to know these people! SarahTessaMariaChelseaMaegenJamieLizAshleyRachelHeidiLena, Christina, Sonja, Alex, and Monique …I just loved spending the time with you!

To celebrate the launch of Tillamook products at your local Kroger Grocer, you need to make this BEST GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE!

Okay…enough Detroit eye candy, let’s get back to this delicious and perfect smoothie recipe. On days where you’re dragging just a bit, this Green Detox Smoothie is truly all you need to turn things around. I always get scared that Green Smoothies will taste…green…but this one is packed with delicious fruits like pineapple, apple, and banana to offset the grassy greens. And of course, we only use the best greens! I am in LOVE with Kroger’s Simple Truth and it’s the only brand of kale and spinach I’ll buy. I know it’s washed, I know it’s fresh, and I know it’s delicious.

To add some protein, I used Tillamook’s Farmstyle Greek Yogurt. It’s SO creamy  and delicious. It’s the perfect little added touch to make this taste more like a dessert than a Green Smoothie. You’re welcome!

How to Make a Green Smoothie:

My best tip for making the perfect Green Smoothie Recipe is packing in the greens first, followed by the almond milk (or whatever liquid you desire), greek yogurt,  and fruits. Use a high powered blender to make sure you get everything as smooth as possible. No chunks in these smoothies please!! For every green ingredient, add a fruit to brighten and keep things tasting great. You’ll be feeling energized in no time!

How long will a Green Detox Smoothie keep in the fridge?

The Chlorophyll (the green pigment in leafy greens) actually helps to keep things fresh, so your green smoothie can actually stay good in your fridge for up to 48 hours. I recommend only 24 hours  in the fridge because of all the fresh ingredients we are throwing in. Always give your smoothie a good stir or pop it back in the blender for a bit before serving.

Can I lose weight by drinking Green Smoothies?

Technically, no food can make you lose weight. Being healthy is all about balance, fresh foods, and exercise. This Green Smoothie Recipe is definitely packed with fresh, whole  food ingredients, so it’s a great start to any healthy day.
