1. Detox Spinach Green Smoothie
When you want to simplify your menu a bit, a vegetable smoothie may be what you are looking for.
Blend a little fiber, a little sweet, a little vegetable and you have got yourself a verified veggie smoothie!
This one contains banana, apple, spinach and one citrus fruit, either lime, lemon or orange.
Water is added as needed for consistency preference!
Yes, it is green.
But you really can’t taste the spinach at all. Popeye would be a happy spokesperson for this delight.
If a green drink is not really your style or does not even look appetizing to you, orange colored veggie smoothies may be more palatable to your preferences!
Here mango, pineapple, diced carrots, and water are blended together for a tropical tasting veggie smoothie recipe.

Blending until smooth is the key here!
The savory sweet potato gives this smoothie an autumn bent and the yogurt gives it a rich texture your mouth will appreciate.
The best kind of vegetable smoothie recipes have no added sweeteners.
Their sweetness comes from the tropical fruit included.
Additionally the ones with healthy fat typically include a fresh avocado!

The recipe can easily be doubled and warmed on another day with no blending necessary!
Chocolate makes everything better.
As a result, this chocolate spinach combination is a creative vegetable smoothie that everyone in your home will love!
Gather milk, spinach, banana, yogurt, blueberries, cocoa powder, vanilla, and ice.
Blend and serve.
Couldn’t be easier!
Yes, you’re hiding some veggies inside and everyone will be better for it!
As you can see, spinach makes the smoothie list quite often, but this veggie smoothie has its equally green counterpart, broccoli!
There are variations included for those following a certain food plan.
The recipe includes yogurt, water, broccoli, apple, banana, pineapple chunks.
Blend liquids first then fruits and veggies.
As with most smoothies, they are best when freshly made, but stay good for one day in the fridge.
Finally, a low carb veggie smoothie recipe!
The star veggies of this show are cauliflower and zucchini!
The sweetness comes from the vanilla protein powder or collagen peptides.
Almond milk and peanut butter are called for, but there are loads of variation options to pick a preferred milk or nut butter!
A bit more zero calorie sweetener could be used if it needs a touch more sweetness for your taste buds!
Vegetable smoothie recipes can highlight lots of different veggies and this one uses frozen peas.
Yep, you read that right, frozen peas.
Bout a quarter cup.
Pair them with a citrus like lime, orange, lemon or grapefruit.
There’s also some spinach, and frozen fruit like mango, pineapple or banana.
After blending smooth, add a touch of sweetener to your liking!
This might be the most beautiful vegetable smoothie you have ever seen!

You can even make it a full meal by serving it on top of granola, seed and coconut yogurt!
The ingredient list includes a beet, spinach, banana, blueberries, apple and water or milk.
Enter the next green veggie to grace our veggie smoothies list, kale.
Not to worry, it gets well balanced with pineapple, yogurt, a cucumber and some hemp seeds.
Delicious indeed, but it is definitely best served cold!
The yogurt makes it creamy so no water is needed.
Ice can be added for extra chill and volume!
Sometimes a veggie smoothie does not need to be over thought!
Grab a few fruits and vegetables you like and see what happens.
Here the combo includes cucumber, spinach, banana, almond milk, ice, and a bit of honey.
This final veggie smoothie recipe oranges and carrots are funt and center.
But the fun begins with the introduction of ginger and turmeric along with a banana, yogurt honey and protein powder.

Last, add ice cubes to the blender and serve with confidence!
This Mixed Berry Smoothie really hits the spot.
