How do I blend greens into my smoothie?

by Jessica

How do I blend greens into my smoothie? Is it okay to add in the greens and blend them first before I add in the fruit? In my first green smoothie, I added the fruit first then added the greens.


But the greens did not blend well. There were pieces of greens throughout the whole smoothie! I wanted it perfectly blended. What should I do?

If you can have good veggies and things that are very healthy and yet difficult for you to consume, this is best way to have it and at the same time do not need to undergo any issues at all. This way you will consume it even without you knowing it.

Jessica,

You can for sure blend the greens with the liquid first and then add the fruit. I have done that while blending with my in-laws' 30 year old blender. :) It may take a while. But just keep blending until the bits are fully blended.

The blender that I use at home is called the Blendtec Total Blender. It makes an incredibly smooth texture, even when I use nuts, seeds, and dried fruits.

If you can't afford a new blender, no worries! Just keep experimenting. Try blending the greens with half the liquid and then add the rest of the liquid, fruit, and frozen ingredients.

What greens are you using? Spinach seems to blend the easiest. Kale and collard greens are the toughest.

I wish all the best to your blending experience!
