Best Green Smoothie Recipes – Pear and Celery

These are the best green smoothie recipes and they make a great breakfast alternative. You can also drink these best green smoothie recipes throughout the day to stay energized and hydrated.

These best green smoothie recipes call for hemp seeds as the protein source.  I always like to use hemp seeds in place of protein powders because they are natural and unprocessed.  Three tablespoons of hemp seeds contain 10 grams of protein which is more than any other nut or seed.  Most protein powders contain low quality protein and are highly processed.

Benefits of Green Smoothies

  • Easy to get more vegetables into your diet as the flavor of the fruit covers up the flavor of the vegetables.
  • Lower sugar content.  By adding greens to your smoothie, you can cut down the sugar content considerably than if your smoothie had fruit alone.
  • Easy to digest.  It is much easier for your body to digest as it is liquid and already broken down by the blender.
  • High mineral content.  Dark leafy greens contain an abundance of calcium and magnesium, and the fruits and berries are high in vitamins and anti-oxidants.
  • Energizing.  Because of the high levels of nutrients and the ease in digestion, these green smoothies are very energizing.
  • Easy and quick.  You just need to clean some fruits and vegetables, throw in a blender and add protein and ice.
  • Inexpensive.  Smoothies purchased commercially can cost as high as $5/smoothie.  You can make them at home for a small fraction of the cost.
  • Alkaline.  Leafy greens and fruits are very alkaline and with help your body from getting too acidic.
