Tried and True Green Smoothie Recipe!

green smoothie recipe

Julie’s Notes: I have a vitamix blender, which can pretty much blend anything. A good blender is key. Also – I actually include some of the orange peel when I make mine. Gives a bit more phytochemicals! I bought one bag of spinach and it lasted for 3 mornings of smoothies. I guess tomorrow, I’m going to have to use chard and spinach from my garden!


  • 1 large orange (peeled and segmented)
  • 1/2 of a large banana (cut into chunks (I used 3/4 of a medium banana))
  • 6 large strawberries
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (I use Chobani 0%)
  • 1 cup ice


  1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
