Green Smoothie Recipes

Note – all recipes make approximately 2 litres – more for later!  These recipes are a great place to start.  Experimenting is fun so start changing or making your own recipes as you get the hang of it.  It’s so easy to do! Remember to adjust the water to suit your taste.  If you don’t have all the ingredients, improvise!

  1. Hi,
    The above recipes sound great.
    I am off to the shops to stock up. I have lots of silverbeet growing which will be put to good use.

  2. Hi Lorraine
    Good luck with your shopping, the silver beet will be excellent for you! It’s great that you are using greens from your own garden. They will be fantastic for your health.
    Cheers
    Nikki

  3. Hi Nikki,
    We have been on these for a week and now we have got in to the habit of chucking things in to the blender, its part of our every day routine. I even take the extra to work to drink throughout the day! Loving it!
    Cheers
    Rick and Kellie.

  4. While your recipes look amazing… I am a diabetic and I can’t even imagine how many grams of sugar per serving your recipes yield… any insight and/or research done here on your part? Thanks!

  5. Hi Sue
    The great news it that you can tailor every recipe to suit your needs. I actually prefer green smoothies that contain less fruit, myself. There will be naturally occurring sugars in any fruit you use. I’m am not a nutritional, so I haven’t broken down of the recipes per serve. It would depend on a lot of things, such as how large the pieces of fruit are, and also how ripe the fruit is. Fruit sugar is certainly one of the healthiest and natural forms of sugar you can have. The dark leafy greens in smoothies will definitely help you with your diabetes. I would suggest you use greens, cucumber and fruits that you like and would eat on any normal day.

    Alternatively, perhaps start with the green soups. Blending leafy greens with vegetables will also be excellent for your health. I would recommend if you are making the green soups, it’s best not overheat the soup. You can actually gently warm the soup in our WHIZ Chimp Blender. If your blender is not able to do this, just warm your soup on the stove, don’t boil it. Changing to a raw food diet will also really make a difference to your diabetes. Just food for thought! Hope this is helpful for you.

    Wishing you lots of health, love and happiness,
    Nikki

  6. Hi – Can you please tell me what fruit you substitute for peaches and apricots when they are not in season / available?
    Really enjoying the smoothies:)

  7. Dear Carina
    Great to hear you are loving the green smoothies! We tend to eat seasonally so if stone fruits are not in season, we use what is currently available. Being winter, we are currently making smoothies with kiwi fruit, mandarins, passion fruit, pears, apples and oranges etc. Eating with the seasons will also give you the maximum variety of nutrients throughout the year. It means that when the beautiful stone fruits are back in season, we can start making our summer smoothies again. I love the stone fruits too, it just makes them even more special when summer comes around again.
    Wishing you lots of health, love and happiness,
    Nikki

  8. Some of your recipes ask for the flesh and juice of a coconut, obviously not an easy task to prepare at any time of day. Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks, Kathy.

  9. Hi Kathleen
    In our new DVD GREEN SMOOTHIES – Taking Your Health From Ordinary To Extraordinary! we actually show you how to open a coconut safely. There is a little bit of trick to it, but it not hard to do and well worth it for the benefits. It’s much easier than it sounds. Youtube also have some great videos on how to do it.
    Wishing you lots of health, love and happiness,
    Nikki

  10. Hi Nikki

    Thanks so much for sharing your story, My partners uncle is recovering from a stroke and the only way we can get proper nutrition in to him is through green smoothies as the hospital is very restrictive to what he eats.

    God Bless you
