This one goes out to all the green smoothie lovers out there. This smoothie is like drinking a delicious multivitamin. It has beautiful, green, calcium-rich kale for strong bones and refreshing cucumber. We’ve also added enzyme-rich pineapple and lime juice to support good digestion. To sweeten the deal, organic mango and vitamin C-rich camu camu rise up, working hard to keep the flu at bay.

Superfood Highlights

Coconut Oil

Coconuts contain significant amounts of fat, but unlike other nuts, they provide fat that is mostly in the form of medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs) in particular, one called lauric acid. Lauric acid in the body is a powerful antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. Adding a moderate amount of coconut-derived foods in your diet may help protect the body from infections and viruses.

Ginger

Ginger is a popular spice. It is high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Ginger is also effective at reducing the day-to-day progression of muscle pain, and may reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness and a great addition to post-workout recovery!

Camu Camu

This sour tropical berry is very high for vitamin C content, giving camu antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Camu camu fruit has the highest recorded amount of natural vitamin C known on the planet (providing up to 30 x more vitamin C than oranges). Camu fruit is bitter and tangy and usually consumed as a powder, which you can add to smoothies, yogurt, or juice.

Wheatgrass

Like all green plants, wheatgrass consists of chlorophyll, a type of green plant pigment associated with many health benefits. It also contains several important antioxidants, including glutathione and vitamins C and E. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that's made in the body's cells. Its levels decrease as a result of aging, stress, and toxin exposure.

Its true y'all. After you drink this you'll believe!

I love all the super greens in this one. Oddly not a super green or grainy texture as I had expected.
Even my picky teenagers are on board now with these for breakfast.

A True Green Smoothie

A REAL green smoothie shouldn't have more than one fruit (nutrition background here!) to reduce sugar content. This one isn't bad though! The greens from the wheatgrass and kale are super beneficial, which I love! I'd love to see the citric acid go, but otherwise, the ingredients are pretty on point! This will be a staple to ensure I really get a good green smoothie!

Tips:
Add some cinnamon in for a little extra flavor and metabolism booster!

Pass this one by

The ginger taste is way too strong on this drink. I expected it to be earthy, but the ginger overpowers it and makes it quite gross

Pretty good

This one is definitely pretty good! Refreshing and packed with lots of veggies!

Tips:
I feel it definitely needs some stevia to sweeten it up and make sure you have a good blender!! This one took longer to blend to chop up the kale!

What a green smoothie should be

I can understand why this might not be the favorite for most people, but I think it's exactly what a green smoothie should taste like. Healthy, light, refreshing (cucumber). Has a slight taste of mango and lime, with a refreshing kick of cucumber as well. Delicious and healthy.

Tips:
I always mix my smoothies with plain filtered water, and this one is no exception. (I find them too sweet and/or heavy when using milk or any kind)

Ginger taste is strong

I don't think ginger belongs in this smoothie. It's already tasting very vegi-like. With the ginger taste, it's just too overpowering and taste like a stir fry

Green life!

this is probably one of the best tasting green type smoothies I’ve had! The first one I mixed with almond milk and was not a fan, I saw some other people suggesting to mix juice in, and I’m all for that! So yummy!

Tips:
Mix with orange juice.

Used almond milk
