Vegetable Smoothies For a Refreshing Change

 

When it comes to smoothies we often think fruit forward. Usually they are made with a base of bananas or berries and blended with nut milks, nut butter, and other tasty ingredients. Sometimes a change is nice and that’s why these 8 vegetable smoothies are definitely worth a try.

These smoothies are vegetable focused and while they do contain some added fruits, it’s the vegetable goodness that really shines. The vegetables also bring in a great dose of added vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre, and enzymes. 

Blended Up The Best Green Spirulina Smoothie

What vegetables are good in a smoothie?

 

If you want to experiment with adding vegetables to your go-to smoothies, you can try adding any of the following. The vegetables listed below are relatively subtle in flavour and blend well with fruits and other ingredients without changing the texture or taste too much. 

  • Spinach (fresh or frozen)
  • Carrot
  • Zucchini (almost tasteless!)
  • Cauliflower (also very mild tasting)
  • Cucumber (adds a great refreshing flavour and goes well with berries)
  • Sweet potato (steamed and cooled)
  • Beets
  • Pumpkin (steamed or roasted and cooled, canned works as well)
