Green Smoothie Recipes

I just love making Green Smoothies.. Its a great way to get in deep green veggies and a wonderful cleansing way to start the mornings. If you have never tried green smoothies before be warned that they do look a bit daunting but taste wonderful.

Strawberry Orange Spinach Smoothie:

1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 or three slices of orange
big handful of baby spinach (about a cup)
juice or water to get it to the consistency you like

*If you are used to really sweet smoothies you may want to a little bit of honey for the first few.
* If using fresh strawberries you may want to add a bit of ice

Kale and Coconut Smoothie:

1 cup of kale leaves
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 banana
3/4 cup of milk (coconut milk works great too)

* flax seeds or hemp hearts are a great addition if you have them on hand
* If you like your smoothies cold you can also add 1/2 cup of ice

What are your favorite green smoothie recipes?  please share!
