Green vegetables are something you either love or you loathe.
But, nobody can deny that they should eat their greens, as part of a balanced diet.
They help provide the essential minerals and nutrients that everyone needs to survive.
So, what if the thought of eating a large bowl of spinach or kale leaves you wracked with fear.
Enter the Green Smoothie
This smoothie is the healthiest of all the SmoothieBox creations.
Because it has the lowest number of carbohydrates and while it looks like a salad, it tastes fresh and tangy.
It is ideal to grab in the morning for a quick breakfast or to supplement a meal at night where you can't face some of your 5-a-day.
Some Smoothie Box members have described the Green Smoothie mix as “clean, refreshing, healthy,” and, “like a salad, very green, but with a touch of ginger.”
But like anything that is good for you, it might take you a bit of time to get used to it, so stick with it.
The taste definitely grows on you and you can add your own favorite vegetables to change up the taste.
The Green Smoothie contains
- Organic spinach
- Organic Granny Smith Apple
- Organic avocado
- Organic pineapple
- Organic lemon juice
- Organic pineapple juice
- Organic flax seed
Avocados have grown in popularity over the years due to the amount of good fatty acids studies have found in what is actually a fruit, believe it or not.
Spinach is packed with both iron and calcium, and you can get a serving of Vitamin C from the avocado, pineapple, and spinach.

The Green Smoothie mix can take longer to blend than other smoothies from SmoothieBox.
We recommend making sure you allow the frozen ingredients to soften for a few minutes before blending.
For the Green Smoothie Mix, some of the best blending liquids are water, orange juice, or coconut water.
Some of best foods other SmoothieBox members add-in include frozen pineapple, mango, honey, yogurt, chia seeds, hemp seeds, maca powder, and even MCT oil or matcha green tea powder.
