Going Green: A Round-Up of our Favorite Juice Plus+ Complete Green Smoothie Recipes

The nutritional benefits of leafy greens are nearly endless, and we all know that incorporating them into our diet is good for our health.  Sometimes, however, it can be difficult to find ways to eat enough greens every day- especially if you don’t like the taste.  Enter green smoothies.  Smoothies are the perfect place to add tons of leafy greens to your diet without sacrificing taste.  Adding a few handfuls to a blender already full of delicious ingredients will seriously up the nutritional impact of your smoothie, while still leaving you with a tasty snack.  Even better, adding  Juice Plus+ Complete Shake Mix can turn any smoothie from a yummy snack to a full nutritional boost in no time.  Think you could use some more greens in your diet?  Try out one of our favorite Juice Plus+ Complete green smoothie recipes below, or come up with your own!

1. Tropical Green Smoothie

There’s nothing quite like a fruity and refreshing smoothie to take your mind to the beauty and tranquility of the beach.  This smoothie incorporates all the best flavors of the beach including pineapple, mango, and banana.  Add Juice Plus+ Complete French Vanilla Shake Mix for an added boost of flavor and nutrition. Your taste buds will be so busy enjoying the tastes of the tropics, you won’t even notice the spinach! 

2. Green Goddess

When most people think of green foods, their minds go straight to vegetables.  Don’t forget about all the delicious green fruits too!  This delicious smoothie recipe celebrates all green produce by including fruits and vegetables like spinach, celery, kiwi, apple and even avocado.  Try it (or any smoothie) with Juice Plus+ Complete Vanilla Shake Mix.  This creamy green smoothie is perfect for a light summer meal.

3. Green Machine

This smoothie is perfect for those of you looking to completely mask any taste of greens.  Kiwi, banana, pineapple and pear disguise any flavor from the spinach and/or kale hiding inside.  Avocado and carrot juice also blend seamlessly with the fruits and, along with your Juice Plus+ Complete French Vanilla Shake Mix, create a creamy and decadent texture that will keep you coming back for more.

4. Chocolate and Kale Protein Smoothie

Blend this up to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way!  Add kale and banana to a spoonful of peanut butter, a splash of almond milk and a scoop of Juice Plus+ Complete Dutch Chocolate Shake Mix to create a delicious chocolate shake you won’t believe is good for you. This is a great one to serve to kids to sneak some kale into their diet!

5. Super Foods Power Smoothie

This super-food smoothie is a great one to make for breakfast to jumpstart your day.  It’s packed with protein to keep you full all morning long, and the banana and kale add a nutritional boost.  It also contains flax seed, which is a great source of fiber.  Kick the protein, fiber and nutritional benefits up a notch by adding Juice Plus+ Complete French Vanilla or Dutch Chocolate Shake Mix. Give this one a try tomorrow morning and feel energized to take on your day!

Smoothies are a great way to add greens into your diet- even if you don’t like the taste of them.  Blending up different combinations of fruits and greens is such an easy way to give yourself a boost of nutrition and delicious flavor, especially when combined with Juice Plus+ Complete.  Recipes like the ones listed above are some of our favorites, and they’re just a starting point.  There are infinite combinations of fruits and greens to make delicious smoothies with your Complete any time of the year!
