Green smoothies are one of my favorite ways to lose weight. I have been drinking them almost every day for over 4 years and still like to use them when I feel a cold/flu coming on.

A green smoothie recipe is a blended drink that mainly contains vegetable greens or fruit, or a combination of both. They are a way to flush my body of toxins, get lots of healthy nutrients, and lose weight.

Green smoothies are often green or bright green and may not exactly look like the most delicious meal, but if done right they are delicious for my taste.

My hunger is not only satisfied, I feel great and lose weight as well.

Some of my recipes of green smoothies:

#1. Metabolism Boosting Green Smoothie

Smoothies with spinach are some of my favorite green smoothie recipes.

The metabolism boosting secret is the almond milk, which contains extra protein and creaminess. 

Metabolism Boosting Green Smoothie Ingredients:

  • 1 orange peeled
  • ⅓ cup strawberries
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1 cup almond milk

#2. Scrub Myself Clean Green Smoothie

This is one of my favorite recipes for a detox smoothie flush. Not only does it taste really delicious for me, but it also helps me boost my metabolism, too!

Scrub Myself Clean Green Smoothie Ingredients:

  • ½ cup strawberries
  • ¼ cup pineapple
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup almond milk

#3. Purple Passion Green Smoothie

This Purple Passion Green Smoothie recipe is a spinach smoothie recipe that’s full of antioxidants thanks to the strawberries and blueberries. 

Purple Passion Green Smoothie Ingredients:

  • ½ cup strawberries
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup water

#4. Grown Up Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

The flavor is divine, and I can hardly taste any of the spinach, since smoothie with spinach tend to be milder tasting. I mostly just taste the banana and strawberry flavors with a hint of vanilla.

  • ½ cup strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

#5. Apple Pie Green Smoothie

It’s one of my favorites to make in the Fall to remind me of apple pie. Apples are high in fiber, vitamin C and various antioxidants.

  • 1 apple peeled and cored
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
