This is not a revolutionary green smoothie recipe, it’s pretty basic. However, it packs in a lot of nutrition, a lot of greens, and it’s tasty. It’s a winner in our house. I’ve pinned a bunch of green smoothie recipes on my cleverly named “Green Smoothie/Juice stuff” board on Pinterest, so feel free to take a look and see what tickles your fancy. There are a ton of great ideas out there.


  • 8 oz cold filtered water
  • 2 big handfuls of baby spinach (maybe 3)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • one apple, cored
  • Half a medium cucumber
  • 2 medium carrots (peels on)
  • If needed, 3-5 drops of Now Foods Liquid Stevia
  • Ice


  1. Chop your apple and veg into big chunks.
  2. Add to blender. Blend.
  3. Serve (this is 2 servings for us-one for each of us).
  4. Drink.
  5. Feel virtuous and healthy 🙂

Be happy that there’s several servings of veggies in that one glass (or shaker bottle.)
