Smoothies have become a quintessential part of most people’s lives.
And why not? They’re easy, they’re delicious, and you can pack so much goodness in one little glass it almost blows your mind.
Whether you’re using smoothies to replace a meal, as a mid-afternoon slump buster, or power up for a busy day, one thing is certain: they have to be tasty.
No one wants their smoothies to end up as a mouthful of inedible goo. And if you like to include superfoods such as spirulina, chlorella, or other green powders, you know all too well what it entails to mask those super strong flavors.
That’s why I’ve put together this list of amazing smoothies that include a range of different greens powders, along with our own Energy Greens superfood powder, which includes the top 3 green superfoods: chlorella, alfalfa sprouts, and barley grass, in addition to 5 other superfoods.
You can literally use our Energy Greens in every one of these recipes, which saves you the hassle of buying every ingredient separately.
