What can I use to sweeten
my green smoothies?

by Susan

I was wondering what can I use to sweeten my green smoothies? I'm new to the green smoothie adventure. I actually made my first this morning with spinach. I loved it! I plan on moving on to kale and collards ASAP.


I was wondering if agave nectar is a suitable replacement for stevia?

Thanks so much!

Best sweeteners in green smoothies...
by: DaNae

I am so glad to hear from green smoothie newbies such as yourself. I hope that you love kale and collards as you get more advanced into making green smoothies.

You can use agave nectar in your green smoothies. I have used agave. But it does have sugar in it and contains calories. This is why I use stevia mostly in my smoothie recipes.

Another yummy natural sweetener is dates. You can add between 2-7 dates depending on how sweet you want the smoothie. Dates contain more fiber and more vitamin and minerals than stevia and agave. But still they contain calories.

I hope this helps! I would love to hear how your green smoothie journey is going.

Happy Blending!
