3 Wholefood Green Smoothie Recipes - No Bananas Needed!

Green smoothies are not only plantbased and incredibly tasty, they are a fantastic, sugar-free way to get your daily dose of essential nutrients and extra leafy green nutrition all in one meal. But are they safe to have every day? As a sugar-free Nutritionist, let me explain why I feel it is ok to have green smoothies, and often. Blenders, ready? Let's go...

Why Green Smoothies Are Good For You

Whether you're looking for a quick and easy breakfast, a mid-day snack, or something plantbased to help you power through an energy slump, green smoothies are a super healthy choice. They are a fast and easy way to increase your consumption of more leafy greens and high fibre fruits and vegetables, while nurturing your gut microbes.

Smoothies help to keep you hydrated, can aid weight loss, improve digestion and boost your overall metabolic function. Being so nutritionally rich with plantbased nutrition, all the extra nutrients can also help to clear up your skin if you suffer from acne, boost mood and your overall energy. Let's dive into three of my favourite banana-free smoothie recipes.

How Often Should You Drink Green Smoothies?

I recommend enjoying a green smoothie 3-4 times a week, or every day but only if you are making sure you vary the ingredients each time. For instance, if you enjoy an almond milk, avocado kale based smoothie on Monday, make sure you switch it up and have a coconut water, mango and arugula based one the next day. Yes, you could safely have a green smoothie every day, but you need to vary the greens, the milk and the fruits to provide your body with a broad spectrum of nutrients throughout the week.
