Green Smoothies Healthy Energy Drink Recipe

One mistake I see people make is to use mostly fruit in their smoothies and juices.
This can drastically raise your blood sugar levels too quickly, just like white sugar.

If you would like a nice, even energy for several hours, it is best to follow the following formula when making your green smoothies.

You could follow the 30/30/30 % Green Smoothie Recipe Formula, which is:

* 30% Vegetables/Leafy Greens (1 cup)

* 30% Fruit (1 cup)

* 30% Liquid (1 cup)

Plus 1 Tbsp Protein like seeds, nuts and nut or seed butters.

VEGETABLES – here’s the Green in Green Smoothies!

• Spinach – Popeye loved spinach and there’s a reason why. In addition to irone and calcium, spinach also contains an abundance of vitamin K. It’s packed with many other important vitamins and minerals including A, B, and E and it has the minerals your body needs. Like kale, spinach pairs nicely with many fruits.

• Celery – Celery is an excellent vegetable to juice and blend. It has diuretic properties and is a detoxifier. It also contains potassium and has been used to lower blood pressure. Celery stalks, including the greens, can be washed and popped into the blender whole. No trimming or peeling required.


• Bananas – Bananas are high in B vitamins. They’re also high in potassium and can give a smoothie a creamy texture. Ripe bananas are extremely sweet and pair well with chocolate, nuts and nut butters along with other tropical fruits.

• Berries – Whether you’re talking about strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or other types of berries, they’re all packed with antioxidants. These antioxidants help fight disease and boost your immune system.


• Hemp Seeds – Known to be one of the most, if not the most, nutritional and beneficial seeds on the planet, hemp is a
good source of protein, amino acids, omega fatty acids, as well as magnesium, potassium and fiber. It also has many of the
vitamins that your body needs to function and stay healthy. Hemp Seeds have a slightly nutty flavor.

• Nut butters – Nut butters like almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter, or even hazelnut butter, add a creamy texture to your smoothies. They also add some protein.


• Coconut Milk – Coconut milk is quite popular right now. It is rich, creamy, and naturally sweet. It also has some health benefits including the ability to raise HDL, the good cholesterol that your body needs. It also has a significant amount of Medium Chain Fatty acids which have been shown to facilitate weight loss.

• Nut Milks – There are also many types of milk found in your supermarket that are made from nuts and seeds. Almond milk and hemp seed milk are two examples. These milks often have added sugars but can be a good alternative to cow’s milk and soy milk if you have food sensitivities.

  1. Diana, when you suggest hemp seeds? Do you mean whole ground hemp seeds? I’ve only purchased hemp hearts myself, which are good in a smoothie too. They just get stuck in your teeth. 🙂

  2. Great tips about not using all fruit. When my husband and I first started juicing a couple of years ago, we made that mistake, but we also didn’t do it for very long, so hopefully it didn’t cause much damage. I’ve never tried hemp seeds, although I use chia seeds a lot. The only thing about chia seeds is that they’ll tend to sink to the bottom of the juice so you have to mix it up from time to time.
