This is a list of veggies used by green smoothiers far and wide. Not all I've tried yet.

Spinach
Kale
Chard
Parsley
Celery
Turnip greens
Collard Greens
Mustard Greens
Romaine
Dandelion Greens

There's more. I'll add when I remember. I really would NOT add starchy vegs like carrots, pumpkin, broccoli and the like. From what I've read, it slows down the process of the smoothie ingredients being digested. You know how starches require more from the body to be digested? These vegetables do NOT combine well with fruit. Plus, you may get some bad gas as a result.

Remember it's important to keep it simple. You do not want a gazillion different veggies in there at one time.




good info... nit a fan of MOST of those greens, so I have to give it a try mixing with lots of fruits.

Great Scott!
I hate blended kale. Can never, ever get used to those little bits and the bitterness.
I've read recently that folk are freezing it and blending with pineapple to negate the taste.
I've not tried it yet, but soon I think.


Here's the link for freezing kale to get it to blend smoothly.
How to make a kale smoothie that doesn't taste like dirt.

Milking Almonds has some good recipes.

Enjoy!

I dislike kale but love it on my smoothies, especially when mixed with watercress. I never taste the kale, only the other green. yum!
