Amazing Cabbage Recipes That
You Will Love!

head of cabbage

Cabbage recipes transformed into delicious green smoothie recipes. Out of most of the greens, I thought that cabbage would have had a strong green flavor. For the last two years, I have been hesitating on using cabbage in my smoothies.

Today, I finally mustered up the courage to add some green cabbage in my strawberry banana smoothie. Wow! I could hardly taste it! Usually, I recommend beginners to use spinach and lettuce in their green smoothies.

But now... Cabbage will be on the beginner green smoothie list also! I can add several cups into a smoothie and hardly notice the green taste!

I even gave a glass of the raspberry strawberry cabbage smoothie to a friend of mine, who does not drink green smoothies. She didn’t even know that she just drank 2 cups of cabbage. The smoothie was a brilliant raspberry red. Amazing!

Also, if you use green cabbage, it will not change the color of your fruit smoothie. This is nice for picky smoothie drinkers who prefer fruity colored smoothies.

You can also use red cabbage to add a brilliant purple to your "green" smoothie. But the red cabbage seem to be stronger in flavor than the green cabbage recipes.


I feel almost guilty on my sneakiness with hiding healthy ingredients in the food. But then I think of how good this food is for them and I call them to the dinner table.

I am exaggerating a little bit. My kids love healthy food. It is my husband that I have to persuade. :)

Chocolate covers up the cabbage flavor really well also.

That’s right... I said chocolate. Mentally, I have a hard time using spinach in my chocolate smoothies. Spinach changes the color and adds a green taste. But with the green cabbage recipes I had no problem. I enjoyed every last drop. As did my family. You can use any of my chocolate smoothie recipes and add 1 cup of cabbage in the initial blending stage.

Top Tips in Blending Cabbage

#1 Blend Cabbage First

I have found that cabbage blends best if I blend the cabbage with the liquid first. Than I add the frozen ingredients and blend again until completely smooth.

#2 Freeze the Cabbage

You can freeze cabbage in quart size baggies before blending. Freezing the cabbage seems to tame down the flavor of the cabbage as it does with kale. This means that you really can hid the color and the flavor of cabbage in your "green" smoothies for your family and friends. :)

Also, you can do this to save money. I recently bought 8 heads of red and green cabbage at the farmer's market for only a dollar a head! A medium cabbage usually makes 3 full batches of green smoothie. Savings like that can really add up!

I hope that you bite the bullet and try these cabbage recipes. They are absolutely yummy!
