Berry Banana Green Smoothie

Basic Green Thickie Recipe

Berry Banana Green Smoothie

Does the thought (or the taste!) or green smoothies makes you all rattled up?

Trust me, I know a lot of people feel exactly the same way!

And if your kids are also picky when it comes to greens in your smoothies, I understand how frustrating it can get to make them drink their green smoothies every morning.

My solution?

Mask not only the taste, but also the color of your smoothies!

I figured this trick a while ago that basically can trick anybody into drinking a green smoothie, myself included!

Here are my top 5 tips for making any green smoothie taste and look good:

  1. Always add a banana for richness and creaminess
  2. Use mild greens like spinach or lettuce – anything strong like arugula might make the smoothie taste bitter
  3. Use a powerful blender to really break those greens – I highly recommend the Blendtec
  4. Use dark berries to mask the green color – blueberries, blackberries, cherries, and acai work the best
  5. Don’t use too much water and keep the smoothie nice and thick

To see all of my best tips in action, I’m sharing this delicious Berry Banana Green Smoothie with you.

Limited Time Blender Special Offer

Thinking of treating yourself to a new blender?  I recommend you get a high speed blender for making Green Thickies as it will turn out incredibly smooth and free from green chunks!  It is also so much faster than using a standard blender.

The blender I recommend and love is a Blendtec as you can just press the button and it performs the magic.  You don’t have to do anything!  (plus you can make your own healthy nut butters and frozen fruit ice cream which kids and adults adore).

The only thing about high speed blenders is they are expensive.  I truly believe they are worth the investment and the best thing I ever bought as I use it so often.  

But if you don’t want to splash out on a brand new high speed blender right now, a good alternative is to get yourself a refurbished blender because they are like new – but a lot more affordable.

Blendtec’s latest discount on refurbished blenders is now live!  This month, the following deal is available:

30% off the price of refurbished blenders.  These blenders are certified refurbished which means they have passed full inspection and meet the stringent standards that Blendtec hold for their machines.  With a full 7-year warranty, these discounted reconditioned blenders will perform and delight for many years to come!
