Yes, this smoothie is green and it actually tastes good. In fact, I go as far and say it is delicious. I must admit, as much as I love living a healthy lifestyle, I was never a big fan of green smoothies. They just tasted bad in my opinion. However, then I created this recipe and I just look forward every morning to drink it. It tastes delicious. The dates make it a sweet treat in the morning.

 

Ingredients

(makes ca. 900 ml or 4 cups)

  • 1 handful of lettuce
  • 2 kale leafs
  • 2 handful of spinach
  • half an apple
  • half a celery stick
  • 8 dates
  • 2 bananas
  • parsley (optional)
  • 150 ml or 5/8 cup coconut water
  • 80 ml or 1/3 cup oat milk ( or whatever vegan milk you prefer)
  • 180 ml or 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice (optional)

Usually, I tend to put all the greens first in the blender together with the liquids, then I add all the other stuff and blend it again.

Feel free to mix and match all different kinds of greens and fruit according to what is available and in season. However, I really recommend to include the dates as they make this smoothie extra sweet.

Enjoy!
